About OUR@UM

Founded in 2022, The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR@UM) enriches and supports undergraduate research across the disciplines at the University of Montana. Part of the Broader Impacts Group, OUR@UM works to foster a vibrant undergraduate research community, culminating each year in the University of Montana Conference on Undergraduate Research (UMCUR).

OUR@UM supports undergraduate research through: advising student researchers at all stages of their research experience, celebrating UM’s active research community through UMCUR and annual awards ceremony, advancing undergraduate research with workshops and events, highlighting exciting undergraduate research and researchers, and partnering with faculty to advance mentorship and cutting-edge opportunities to engage students in research.
