Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor (URaCE)


About Us

At UTC, the undergraduate student experience centers on inquiry, discovery, and community.  Through undergraduate research experiences our students acquire the twenty-first century skills necessary to successfully navigate the global world of work or advanced study, and make significant contributions to society.

The Office for Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor (URaCE) is committed to broadening undergraduate research experiences for all students regardless of background, discipline, or year of study.   Our programs and initiatives aim to foster a robust research culture that involves the entire UTC community, while also contributing to the local environs of Chattanooga, and creating dialogues with the wider global community.

Mission: The Office for Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor supports and promotes transformative undergraduate research experiences for all students through deep engagement, community building, and strategic partnerships.

Vision: Undergraduate Research for All
