Undergraduate Research

Undergrads discussing research project

Our goal at Villanova University is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship. We work diligently both within the university and with external agencies and foundations to enhance research opportunities for faculty and students

Villanova University has an extensive community of researchers who have published various bodies of work across the disciplines that can be found in the Villanova Community Bibliography. A database of the entire published output of Villanova University's authors and researchers, the Community Bibliography is a great tool for undergraduate research students to search for faculty who are researching and publishing in their fields. In addition, it is a celebration of the scholarship of Villanova University from 1842 to the present.
