CBU’s Office of Research and Graduate Studies (ORGS) is eager to support and celebrate the student research experience. It’s about empowering CBU students to make links between classroom learning, the research experience and how to approach complex questions. It’s also about doing amazing research with world-class CBU researchers as mentors, contributing to community-engaged research and building a portfolio of their experiences.
Students often ask how to get involved in research at CBU. First, bring your curiosity to the classroom. Ask questions, share things you’ve read or learned – show that you are inquisitive and like to learn new things. Next, approach your instructors and let them know you are interested in research opportunities. It may help to get familiar with your professor’s research and scholarly publications.
As part of CBU’s Strategic Research Plan, we’ve committed resources to increase research opportunities for undergraduates, as well as mentoring and training for graduate students.
CBU offers two programs to support the student research experience. Some offer research opportunities with CBU faculty, connections to community and industry partners or a combination of these experiences.
