Welcome to OUGR!
Universities have two very important functions in human society: the acquisition of new knowledge and the dissemination of knowledge to the broader community. Most undergraduates are familiar with the latter function, but are only superficially aware of the former. Our mission is to promote greater student involvement in the acquisition of knowledge. Recent research shows that involving students in research has many beneficial outcomes: higher GPAs, greater retention, faster graduation rates, greater satisfaction with the college experience and increased pursuit of graduate degrees. In short, the undergraduate research experience can be one of the most transformative experiences an undergraduate student can have.
