"Research is in the DNA of academia. That is, at the roots of modern universities is the endeavor to observe, model, and experiment on physical and societal phenomena, to share the results, and to entrust the knowledge and the communing mindset associated with these scientific activities to the new generation. In this spirit, it is our duty to our students to involve them in research."   ~ Dr. Mario Freamat, Undergraduate Research Coordinator

I enjoy doing research not only does it allow me to contribute to the advancement of nursing knowledge as an undergrad, but it’s also an intellectually stimulating process that enhances critical thinking skills.
