Center for Research, Experiential, Artistic & Transformative Education
Located in the Wright Campus Center, Room 204, CREATE helps administer opportunities for Undergraduate Research (UR) for the students of Austin College. There are several different programs to get involved with research via the classroom or independently, and students can choose from group or individual research projects. Each project will have a mentoring faculty member to guide students through the process and opportunities throughout the year for students to show their work and share their knowledge.
What does Undergraduate Research (UR) mean at Austin College? Any inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student and mentored by a faculty member that includes original intellectual or creative work that is communicated with a scholarly context.
Mission: To advance opportunities, both curricular and co-curricular, for undergraduate students to engage in mentored research, creative inquiry, scholarship, and professional experience throughout the College community. CREATE is the primary campus resource for students and faculty seeking guidance or support related to each of these activities.
This event showcases student-faculty collaborative projects and independent student projects undertaken at Austin College, celebrating our students’ outstanding academic endeavors.

The Departmental Honors Program is designed to challenge superior students in their final year of undergraduate study to use their disciplinary training to delve deeper into a topic of interest in the major. The program emphasizes independent investigation and culminates in completion of a bachelor’s thesis or special research project.
