Research at Ogden College

Our focus is student-centric applied research – students learning through practice and experience.  We believe innovation, inquiry, discovery, and generation of new knowledge is the basis of both excellent teaching and learning.  Research is an adventure.

Whether studying subsurface hydrology at Mammoth Cave, reducing human-elephant conflict in Africa, understanding how our brains change with age, synthesizing potential drugs for cancer therapy, or examining the genetics of tumor formation, the research work of our students and their faculty mentors make Ogden College an exciting place for students. Our students made over 500 presentations of their research work at regional, national, and international conferences last year.

To support the research adventures and these wonderful professional travel opportunities for our students, Ogden faculty mentors constantly seek out resources to support research students and projects.  Over the past three years, 82 faculty mentors from every academic department in Ogden College received 302 research grants valued at $20.6 million. 

The real question is: Who learns more – the research student or the faculty mentor?
