Research: A K-State Tradition

Research Ambassadors - Presenting the Face of the Future

The Office of Undergraduate Research is proud to present our first ever Research Ambassadors!

OURCI Research Ambassadors would love to present to your classroom, campus group, or friends about how research and creative inquiry can become an important piece of your undergraduate career. Their concise presentation explains why research is so beneficial to you, that you can research in ANY area of study, and how easy it is for you to get involved at K-State. 

Email aqjax@ksu.edu to set up a presentation, ask questions, or stop by our office for more information.
