Learn from and work side-by-side with our world-class faculty who directly involve students in their research.

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at Central Michigan University began in the summer of 2002, with the goal of stimulating talented undergraduates to learn new mathematics by working on challenging, unsolved research problems.

Long-term Undergraduate Research (LURE)

Research opportunities in the CMU Department of Mathematics include collaborating with faculty members and experiencing each step of a research project through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Long-term Undergraduate Research Experience (LURE). This program supports teams of CMU students – for up to two years – to collaborate with mathematics faculty on undergraduate research.

Through closely supervised research and independent study activities spanning two summers (10 weeks each) and two academic years, students experience all steps in a research project, from background reading to professional presentation of results.
