Past Projects

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program was created to assist in formalizing existing opportunities and to expand participation of undergraduate students in faculty-led research projects.

Due to COVID-19, the SURE 2020 program did not take place. The SURE 2021 program was conducted virtually, and all research activities were governed by policies regarding safe research practices on campus. Check out past projects conducted by SURE faculty and students!
