First Steps

At UTC, all students can participate in UR regardless of background, discipline, or year of study.

The Office for Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor (URaCE) is your primary resource for support throughout the entire research process. From getting started in UR to sharing your research through publication and presentation, we are here to assist you.

Steps to Engagement

Did you know that a variety of professionals including UTC faculty, graduate students, staff, and community members can mentor UR projects? As you begin your search for an UR position, seek out and connect with faculty and others who are working on projects in your area(s) of interest. Casual conversations with faculty and others often lead to UR opportunities. Take advantage of office hours and start the research conversation!
