The Office of Student Research promotes an inclusive research community that supports the intellectual development of new and experienced researchers. We support research in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, humanities, social sciences, and art and performance fields, as well as professional studies that include business, social work and education.

We offer professional development, consultations, workshops and resources for faculty and students, and we facilitate various collaborative and independent research opportunities.


OSR provides professional development consultations for undergraduate and graduate students. We assist undergraduate students with applications for internal and external funding and research programs, conference abstracts and proposals, curriculum vitae, presentations and publication submission. Students should make an appointment with the consultant for their discipline.

Dr. Crystal S. Anderson, Director, provides consultations with undergraduates with interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary interests as well as graduate students. She is also available to consult with faculty about student research. Email her at to schedule an appointment.
