Workshops and Information Sessions

In addition to the resources available online, OUR organizes a series of workshops and information sessions on topics related to undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity. For fall 2021, workshops and information sessions will be held online. On this page, you will find the schedule of workshops and information sessions for the current semester as well as handouts from the most recent iterations of these events.

Are you looking for information about other OUR events? Follow these links for information about Frontiers exhibitions or the Month of Discovery.

Would you like someone from OUR to visit (virtually) and talk with your class, organization or club? We can do that!
We ask that you make your request at least 2 weeks in advance by completing this online form.
