|Office of Undergraduate Research||
Studies have shown that incorporating experiential learning into the undergraduate academic journey can have very positive ramifications as the students test and experience their chosen professions by becoming immersed in research. UT has many different research programs and opportunities funded through the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR-UT) and others. Research is an integral part of every discipline and UT faculty have been supportive of engaging undergraduate students in their research programs.
The University of Toledo policy web site is a compilation of relevant policy, operational procedures and governing documents of The University of Toledo. The purpose of the policy web site is to ensure faculty, staff, and students have ready access to the policies.
