The Bryan Center for Undergraduate Research (BCUR) promotes the academic research endeavors of the college's undergraduate students and supports the college's motto and mission. 


We believe that there is a thoughtful, productive, and necessary tension between the tassel and the cross.  Our mission is to provide opportunities for students to engage in a number of research projects both on and off campus.

The BCUR annual undergraduate research conference is the primary means through which we encourage and promote student research.  One of the many advantages of attending Bryan is the opportunity to participate in research. Our undergraduates acquire first-hand research experience in their academic disciplines while developing important skills such as critical thinking, information gathering and processing, and effective communication. The BCUR encourages holistic education of the entire person: heart, soul, and mind, so he or she can truly and competently make a difference in today's world.
