Why be a Benefactor to OUR-UNLV?

The Office of Undergraduate Research supports scholarly activities and professional development for undergraduate students at UNLV in all academic fields from fine arts to Engineering. Your contribution will support a wide range of undergraduate student activities by allowing students in diverse fields to extend their education beyond the classroom and apply what they’ve learned to discover, innovate, create, and experience. Undergraduate student research not only benefits the students and faculty who participate in these activities, it also contributes to innovation and research productivity at UNLV with new ideas and energy from these emerging scholars. The Las Vegas community also profits from student research involvement by providing valuable skills and training to students who will go on to careers in Southern Nevada, and through students’ entrepreneurial activities and creative ideas that result from being engaged in the research experience.
