Undergraduate Research


Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR)

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) seeks to increase the number of students participating in and completing mentored undergraduate research and internship opportunities by collaborating with FAMU’s colleges and schools as well as external entities.  These opportunities are designed to encourage and motivate undergraduate students to fully leverage these unique extensions of their academic careers.  It is our intention, as a result of these experiences, to better position students to enter the workforce with applied knowledge and skills essential to their success.

OUR will enable students to easily access information about these offerings and apply for investigative projects and programs in which they have a keen interest. 



Our History

Florida A&M University’s Provost, Dr. Maurice Edington established the FAMU OUR in 2019.   One of the signature activities of the OUR is the World Class Scholars Research Experience for Undergraduates (WCS REU), which launched that same summer. The inaugural summer REU supported 37 students from 17 majors to work with a FAMU faculty research mentor for eight weeks during the summer semester.  Since that time, hundreds of students from most of the University’s colleges and schools have participated in the WCS REU initiative.
