Introduction to VCUR
What is Undergraduate Research?
An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline.
The VMI Center for Undergraduate Research (VCUR) integrates student intellectual curiosity into the VMI experience. It establishes the framework in which educational development can thrive outside the classroom environment. Academically motivated cadets work closely with faculty mentors in a unique one-on-one environment as they pursue scholarly research. A major goal of VCUR is to enhance the existing curriculum and elevate cadet standards and expectations.
Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR)
The mission of the Council on Undergraduate Research is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.
