The mission of the Methodist University Center for Undergraduate Research and Creativity (CURC) is to establish educational opportunities that are collaborative and inquiry-based with the intention that every Methodist University student has access to exploratory learning across the curriculum.
What We Do
Methodist University's Center for Undergraduate Research and Creativity was established to provide its students with the opportunity to participate with faculty members through collaborative projects. Participation in these interactive projects allows for improved student learning as the students apply the concepts introduced in the classroom with real-world application in an academic area of the student's interest. Furthermore, the students will get to interact more closely with their instructors and obtain more one-on-one contact with their project faculty mentor.
Methodist University recently held its Inaugural Undergraduate Research and Creative Projects Symposium. This Symposium will be held each spring semester allowing students to share their research and created projects with their peers, the rest of the MU Community, as well as the surrounding community. The Center also supports students wishing to present their research beyond Methodist, including at the State of North Carolina's Undergraduate Research and Creative Projects Symposium and other discipline-specific or professional conferences.
