Our Purpose:

Case Western Reserve University has a long tradition of strong undergraduate education and outstanding research and graduate programs. SOURCE, the centralized office for undergraduate research, brings these strengths together.

The goal of the SOURCE office is to assist and prepare students to engage in research and creative endeavors, and to guide and, where appropriate, to supplement institutional, departmental, and divisional work with this effort. This means that the SOURCE office is here to help students learn about research and creative project opportunities, to assist faculty members with undergraduate research program development and funding, provide research educational seminars and information sessions, and to celebrate our students' accomplishments.
