The Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences (PURE)

The mission of the Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences (PURE) is to promote undergraduate research, in its broadest sense, at Western Oregon University. PURE strives to build and sustain a culture of support for student scholarly endeavors through the development of a campus-wide infrastructure that enhances dissemination, fosters communication, and provides funding for this initiative. PURE's efforts foster additional opportunities for meaningful and sustainable faculty-student collaboration in research, scholarship, and creative activities at Western Oregon University.
