Undergraduate Research at Huron

One of the things that makes Huron so unique is our dedication to fostering exceptional undergraduate research experiences. We want every student to have the opportunity to critically investigate topics they’re passionate about through contextualized and experiential learning.

Mission Statement

Our vision is to transform undergraduate learning through research. 
Our mission is to advocate, support and enhance undergraduate research learning opportunities at Huron. 

Strategic Objectives

The Centre for Undergraduate Research Learning aims to transform undergraduate learning through opportunities that support students in research, academia, and their future careers.

We have four fundamental strategic directions:

  1. Enhance student learning with highly engaging, immersive research experiences.
  2. Enhance existing faculty research strengths by facilitating engagement and collaboration with students.
  3. Enhance faculty teaching by fostering mentorship and sharing of student research learning practices.
  4. Facilitate research partnerships with Huron’s external community.

Annually, CURL awards eight Student Research Fellowships. Student Research Fellowships occur during the Fall/Winter term from October to April and during the Summer Term from May to August.
