Providing opportunities to participate in research and creative activities marks a fundamental aspect of WSU’s commitment to provide undergraduate students with a truly transformational college experience.
Hundreds of our world-class faculty members mentor undergraduate students to offer an experience few institutions can match. Students benefit from these hands-on lessons in numerous ways: working in teams, creative problem solving, exploring potential careers, mentorship from faculty members, and better understanding of others’ research.

PULLMAN, Wash.—Washington State University undergraduates Marleny Garcia, Carlie Knox, and Collin Warrick won national awards for outstanding presentations at the 2016 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) Nov. 12 in Tampa, Fla.
ABRCMS is one of the largest professional conferences for underrepresented minority students, military veterans, and persons with disabilities; students present work they have done in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. It is supported by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences. This year, 1,850 students were chosen to present research in 12 scientific disciplines, attend workshops, and meet representatives from universities and businesses. Award winners received cash prizes and special acknowledgements at a closing dinner.
