"Many colleges and universities now provide research experiences for students in all disciplines. Undergraduate research, however, is most prominently in science. The goal is to involve students with actively contested questions, empirical observation, technologies, and the sense of excitement that comes from working to answer questions." -- George D. Kuh

Interested in incorporating Undergraduate Research as a HIPs practice?
Please be sure to include the following UR Syllabus Statement with your course:
"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. "
