Idaho Spotlight on Undergraduate Research Experiences

Vandal Undergraduate Research

For many students, an education at University of Idaho is more than just a classroom experience. Thousands of undergraduates are working with UI faculty on research projects, gaining lab or field experience, giving presentations, and authoring publications. These experiences provide vital additions to one’s resume and greatly increase acceptance rates into post-graduate programs and jobs. This site displays projects by many UI undergrads. Each page that describes a student’s work and accomplishments is developed and maintained by that student. Contact information is provided for the student and the faculty advisor(s) of the project.
