At Roosevelt University, students ask significant questions. They seek answers through research and creative endeavors, and share and apply their knowledge in ways that actualize the university’s mission of creating socially conscious citizens. At Roosevelt, we encourage engagement in research and creative mission-related scholarship from the moment you arrive on campus.

The Office of Student Research (OSR) believes that inquiry, discovery, and creative scholarship are central to students’ academic and personal growth, as well as their intellectual development. We seek to cultivate a vibrant community of learners from across the university, as the student body’s engagement in knowledge creation is transformative for the university community as a whole. The OSR seeks to nurture and encourage students to transform their academic experiences under the mentorship of Roosevelt faculty by expanding opportunities for students that facilitate, support, fund, and recognize student research and mission-related creative and scholarly projects. Through the OSR’s fellowship and learning academies, we aim to foster students’ disciplinary competencies as well as various transferable skills, including leadership, collaboration, active learning, critical thinking, intellectual independence, and creative problem solving.
