The Office for Undergraduate Research (OUR) is committed to providing comprehensive training and support to undergraduate researchers. To that end, the OUR offers an extensive selection of workshops throughout the academic year that focus on skill acquisition and professional development.

Students who want to learn about the research process at USF should attend all three workshops offered in the Getting Started in Undergraduate Research workshop series. Together, these three interactive workshops provide the essential information and skills necessary to search for and successfully obtain a research experience.

For students who want to acquire additional professional development skills the OUR administers the Professional Development Workshop series. Topics include Attending an Academic Research Conference, Demystifying Graduate School, and Developing and Writing a Persuasive Research Abstract. Finally, the OUR conducts several Colloquium Preparation workshops each spring semester in conjunction with the annual OUR sponsored Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium.
