VMI Center for Undergraduate Research

The mission of the VMI Center for Undergraduate Research (VCUR) is to promote and facilitate faculty-mentored undergraduate research and foster the development of a culture of undergraduate research at VMI. VCUR operates on the premise that some of the most enduring, meaningful academic experiences of college students come through opportunities to be mentored one-on-one by faculty outside the classroom, while also believing in the merit of research and other inquiry-based experiences within a more traditional classroom setting. Programs include an annual undergraduate Research Symposium held on post; Summer Undergraduate Research Institute; cadet travel grants to present at professional meetings or conduct research in the field; and funding for supplies for cadet academic year research. For more information, contact the Director of Undergraduate Research, 600 Preston Library.
