The Office of Undergraduate Research & Studies (OURS) is a resource for all undergraduates in all majors and at all stages of experience. OURS helps students find research and scholarly opportunities on and off campus, throughout the year. Students are also supported in preparing for and navigating the application process.

For a one on one meeting, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research & Studies ours@acad.umass.edu or visit us on the 10th floor of the W. E. B. Du Bois Library.


Community Engaged Research Program

"The Community-Engaged Research Program (CERP) was launched in June of 2012 to train the next generation of outstanding researchers and scholars to study topics of importance to communities.

CERP is designed to identify and match undergraduate honors students with community- based research opportunities and to prepare them for graduate studies, as well as research careers in universities, research and policy-making organizations, the health care industry, and government agencies."
