The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) promotes and facilitates the research environment of WCU. We assist faculty and students who are interested in being involved in research on campus.
West Chester University Research day provides a venue for all our students, faculty and administrators to present, discuss, and highlights their research and scholarship outcomes. It also serves as a valuable forum for students to practice their presentations prior to upcoming regional and national conferences.

WCU Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI) participants will spend five weeks during summer 2018 (June 4th through July 6th) conducting research and scholarly/creative work full-time (40 hours/week) under the direct supervision of a faculty member. At the end of the five-week program, interested students will be able to apply for a three-week extension to their experience, during which they can continue work on their projects. SURI allows undergraduate students to pursue a substantial research question, contribute to a scholarly endeavor, or to produce an artistic or creative work, while being mentored by a faculty member.
