About Us

The Office of Student Research (OSR) was established in September 2011 by Dr. Francisca Beer, Dr. Andrew R. Bodman, and Dr. Jeffrey M. Thompson.  Drs. Beer, Bodman, and Thompson created the OSR to facilitate students' engagement in scholarly and creative activities related to their disciplines by providing resources that support student scholars and their faculty mentors. Today, the OSR is led by Associate Provost for Research, Dr. Dorota Huizinga, and Director, Dr. Ryan Keating
