A major objective of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is to involve undergraduate students in faculty and staff-led research. The Marine Field Station faculty and staff focus on providing marine-related research opportunities through independent studies projects, summer research experiences, research contracts and grants. Many research efforts initiated in the past 5-10 years are still underway while newer projects come about on a regular basis through internal and external funding opportunities.
