Embry-Riddle strives to create a culture of knowledge discovery through research. The Office of Undergraduate Research engages undergraduate students in faculty-mentored research that is led by both students and faculty. Our mission is to provide an inclusive and diverse set of opportunities for all undergraduate students to enhance their intellectual and personal development through engagement in research, inquiry, innovation and/or other scholarly projects to prepare for their professional careers. 

Our Objectives

To help students:

1. Apply critical thinking, ethics and information analyses in decision-making processes.

2. Understand the nature of research, investigation and scholarship.

3. Utilize discipline-based inquiry skills in their communities to create or understand new knowledge.

4. Disseminate their research to engage with their community and enhance communication skill.

Our Vision

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Daytona Beach will be an internationally recognized center for excellence in undergraduate research, innovation and scholarship where every student engages in scholarly learning throughout their academic careers.
