The mission of the Student Research Office is to increase participation in student research at Purdue University Calumet and support a culture and climate in where student-faculty collaboration flourishes through shared scholarship and research. Now in PUC, more than ten percent of students are engaged in research under faculty supervision. This becomes an important part of the strategic plan of our university.
