Two students discussing a research topic

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides intellectual and administrative support for students conducting faculty-mentored research at Oberlin College.

The student-mentor relationships supported by this office have allowed students to transfer their curiosity from the classroom to the library, the laboratory, and field sites around the globe. The opportunity for learning and laboring under faculty supervision provides our students with a firsthand understanding of the rigor and discipline necessary to maintain an active research program. Oberlin College produces more eventual PhDs than any of its peer institutions, and the opportunities for research provided by this office help ensure that Obies with PhDs are gender diverse, economically diverse, and racially diverse.
