Mission Statement

URCA Mission Statement 

To provide grant funding that expands the opportunities for undergraduate students and faculty to work collaboratively on scholarly projects in the academic year and during the summer. In the context of this program, research and creative activities are defined as “any intellectual, inquiry-based project undertaken by the undergraduate student that advances the knowledge of the student in an academic discipline, immerses the student in the culture of the discipline, and leads to new scholarly insights or the creation of new works that add to the wealth of the discipline.”
