The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) provides students with a multitude of opportunities for professional development and career training in research. As such, OUR's Research Skills Academy (RSA) serves to inform and empower students with research training and skills to become research ready.

For the upcoming semester, all RSA trainings will be offered virtually through Webex. Please register through the UNLV Involvement Center to receive meeting information.

In addition to RSA trainings, OUR offers research-oriented instructional support for faculty through classroom presentations.
