The 2018 Summer Undergraduate Research Institute is Underway

 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.
