Our Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Works strives to embed research and creative works in the academic experience of all Adelphi undergraduate students.
Council on Undergraduate Research
Did you know that Adelphi has an enhanced membership with the Council on Undergraduate Research?
How to Start
Students interested in Guided Research and Creative Works must find an individual faculty member to serve as adviser. Students will generally work on a project that falls within one of their adviser’s active research and creative areas.

Why Undergraduate Research is Important
Getting involved in research and creative works will provide opportunities to generate new knowledge, think critically and outside of the box, and fine-tune collaborative and communication skills. Instead of learning facts and content that others have discovered for you, doing research allows you to apply the knowledge and skills from your classes to discover new information yourself and advance your field. It can be an amazingly fulfilling and transforming intellectual and personal experience, though it can also be demanding.
Doing hands-on creative inquiry with faculty known in their field will refine your professional interests and establish a relationship with your mentor that often lasts beyond your time at Adelphi.

The Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Works’ mission is to support faculty and undergraduate students as they embark on inquiry-driven, creative research endeavors.
