Student Research | College of Nursing and Health Sciences | The University of Vermont(title)

The University of Vermont is one of the top-ranked small public research institutions in the country and offers students the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors to gain hands-on experience.

Work that helps the world

Undergraduate research involves collaboration between students and faculty that can culminate in a variety of ways. Published manuscripts or oral presentations deliver the knowledge gained through the research experience to others in the academic community and to the community at large.

Why do research?

Undergraduate research helps students understand what they've studied in the classroom in a newer, deeper way. Just a few reasons to participate in undergraduate research include: 

  • Learning problem solving and communication skills
  • Working with a faculty mentor
  • Exploring careers
  • Becoming a more competitive applicant to graduate or professional school

The UVM Student Research Conference and College of Nursing and Health Sciences Zeigler Forum offer opportunities for students to showcase their research and scholarship annually.

Find a research opportunity

UVM is classified as a "high research activity" university, which means all tenured faculty on campus participate in independent research. Take time to ask faculty about their research, or stop by the Office of Undergraduate Research for advice. It's never too early to get involved.
