Welcome to the URO
Welcome to the Undergraduate Research Office (URO). We are here to support undergraduates in their pursuit of scholarly activity. Our office manages cadet travel, research presentations during Student Excellence Day, supports the Student Research Club, manages The Citadel Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE), and provides support for poster presentations.
The primary objective of the URO is to facilitate the engagement of undergraduate students in investigative inquiry, experimentation, or creative expression under the guided mentorship of faculty. Work pursuing any dimension of original exploration using qualitative, quantitative, design, or creative processes is encouraged.
If you have questions or want to be involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
