Notice: Status of Undergraduate Research Office and Summer Research Programs

In response to the campus plan issued by IU President Michael McRobbie regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and with the safety and well-being of students and others in mind, the IU Undergraduate Research office will be closed until further notice. IUUR staff can be contacted at uroffice@indiana.edu.

Additionally, we have a few updates to our summer programming:

  • The Project STEM high school summer research program has regretfully been cancelled.  We look forward to resuming the program in the summer of 2021.  
  • The LSAMP summer research program is currently under review.  We are looking at ways to continue to support LSAMP researchers over the summer with the possibility of face-to-face research taking place in the fall.  More details will be announced shortly. 

We look forward to continuing to support undergraduate research at IU in new and creative ways and encourage you to check the website regularly for updates.
