Historical Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR/REU)

Undergraduate Research Programs

The Mathematics Department has offered a summer research program for undergraduates for many years. Formerly an REU and now called SPUR, the 8-week program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students of mathematics to participate in leading-edge research. We offer three projects every summer, each led by an expert in the field.
