Course-Based Undergraduate Research (CBUR) Resources

As the only scalable option for providing research experiences to all OU students, Course-Based Undergraduate Research (CBUR) is a critical focus for the O.U.R. The O.U.R. supports programs and policies at the institutional level and provides resources and guidance at the faculty and departments to bring more CBUR to OU.

Research Course Attributes

The O.U.R., with support and input from the O.U.R. Faculty Council, have designated three course attributes for OU that indicate the depth of the research engagement and the fraction of course credit for the project.
