About Us


The mission of the Undergraduate Research and Creative Work Program at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University is to provide our students with the opportunity to engage in intensive scholarship, research, or creative work within the students' chosen field of study. The goal of the program is to support student work in a manner which allows for the work to be presented in some form to a larger external audience (e.g., publication, exhibition, scholarly presentation, or public performance). The Undergraduate Research and Creative Work Program provides resources and support to both the students and their faculty mentors that will facilitate the students' scholarly and creative efforts. Mentorship must take place within a scholarly context throughout the entire execution of the research or creative work and be a formative process.
