The Center for Undergraduate Research (CUR) PantherQuest program empowers students to engage in research or creative inquiry learning experiences. Each project shall be conducted as a team, including undergraduate student(s) and a project mentor. The PantherQuest team shall submit a project proposal to be reviewed by the CUR staff. Once approved, the team is expected to adhere to the project components and upon completion, submit a final paper and participate in CUR sponsored events.
A research or creative inquiry project:
Virginia Union University (VUU) undergraduate students from all disciplines/majors can engage in a PantherQuest. Additionally, any VUU faculty/staff member, alumnus, or community member interested in serving as a project mentor to VUU undergraduate students can propose a PantherQuest project.
All students and project mentors interested in submitting a proposal should complete the PantherQuest proposal (see requirements below) and submit to CUR@vuu.edu using the subject line “PantherQuest Proposal”. The CUR office will review your submission and contact the Principal Investigator directly.
No worries! Schedule a meeting with a member of the CUR team and we will work with you to develop your idea. Additionally, we can pair you with another student or mentor with similar research interest. Visit our PantherQuest Opportunities page for a list of research and creative inquiry activities.
