To create meaningful academic and real-world experiences for our students through undergraduate research.
Valid research experiences in academia are not always equated to original research; also critical to the field of research is the ability for scholars to validate original research. This too provides opportunities for all students at Pikes Peak Community College to gain valuable research experience. Undergraduate Research at Pikes Peak Community College seeks foster an environment where community partners, the administration, staff, faculty and most importantly students create a rich, high-impact academic experience that aids with the following:
"This section of [AAA 101] is a PPCC endorsed Undergraduate Research (UR) class, where part of the course will be spent on UR activities. This activity will support course objectives, while promoting at least two of the following skills: inquiry, topic development, constructing a research question or a working hypothesis, collecting data via primary or secondary source material or experimentation, use deductive or inductive reasoning to analyze data, and reflection. All UR classes must use either writing assignments, oral presentations, or publication in an academic or school journal, like Parley, in an effort to report findings to a larger scholarly community. "
