Why Participate in Undergraduate Research and Creative Collaboration?


Getting involved in research, scholarship, and other creative projects with Hunter's exceptional facultyand the one-on-one support and mentoring received as part of the process—can transform students' professional and personal lives. Some students develop a passion for research and creativity that they did not know they possessed. Others, who did not think they could "do" this kind of work, recognize that they can not only do itthey can do it well enough to consider pursuing it as a career. 

Undergraduates who participate in scholarly research and creative activity outside of formal classroom settings are more engaged in their college studies, more likely to graduate, and more successful in applying for and gaining entrance into graduate and professional schools.

The Hunter faculty, training programs, and other opportunities presented on this site represent Hunter's commitment to providing its students with an outstanding education by offering undergraduates the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research, scholarship and creative work across the arts and sciences and the health and education professions.
