OUR Research Profiles

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) creates profiles to foster an interconnected community of research, scholarly, and creative activities participants at Cal Poly Pomona.

The goal of creating both the faculty and student profiles is to showcase the diverse selection of contributors in research within our campus. Research embodies the Cal Poly Pomona ideology of “Learning by Doing". Whether faculty mentors or student researchers, we aim to give more visibility to the extensive network of research involvement at Cal Poly Pomona. We aspire to provide inspiration for research engagement as more individuals gain a better understanding of current or past research, scholarly, and creative activities.
