Center for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CURE)

The Center for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CURE) in Dyson College of Arts and Sciences provides leadership, coordination and support to student-faculty research collaborations, grant-funded research projects and programs, and opportunities for service learning. CURE is part of Dyson’s efforts to innovatively enhance the quality of both the academic experience and overall student life at Pace University. At the same time CURE also evolved from Pace University’s membership in the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR), a national organization of over 900 colleges and universities whose mission is to “support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.”

Undergraduate research in Dyson College encourages student collaboration with faculty in a variety of creative and scholarly endeavors that may include publications, presentations at symposia, poster sessions, website development and performances. In recognition that sustained and intensive faculty mentoring cultivates strong undergraduate achievement and retention, CURE works to strengthen existing student-faculty research and the fostering of opportunities for new partnerships. To advance student-faculty collaboration and scholarship, CURE tracks Dyson funding applications and offers support for both internal and external research-funding sources.

Dyson Research Opportunities

CURE is part of Dyson College’s ongoing commitment to strengthening a research culture at Pace University. Dyson is a member of the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR), a national organization of over 900 colleges and universities whose mission is to “support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.” CURE provides leadership, coordination and support to student-faculty research collaborations, grant-funded research projects and programs. Both the Society of Fellows of Dyson College activities and the Dyson Summer Research Awards are housed at CURE. The Summer Research Awards competition is held in three award categories, the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Initiative, Faculty Research Grants and the new Faculty Extramural-Funding Research Grant.

CURE also offers experiential learning to Pace students through grant programs such as the Jumpstart AmeriCorps Program.
