Research & Writing Showcases
The English Department participates in Purdue’s annual Research Expo hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR). OUR’s mission is to promote and expand experiential learning for students through research experiences with skilled mentors. Studies show that students who engage in research are more likely to graduate, more likely to go on to graduate school, and have more successful careers after graduation.
