Undergraduate Research is an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline. Undergraduate research is conducted under the supervision of a faculty mentor and typically culminates in a poster or oral presentation and a comprehensive written report, essay or thesis.
Creative Scholarship is likewise conducted with a faculty mentor and typically culminates in a public performance, reading or exhibition. In many cases, a creative project will also result in a reflective or interpretive essay that explores the creative process and examines the sources of artistic inspiration.
