HOUR (the Hopkins Office for Undergraduate Research), founded in early 2017, builds upon the University’s strengths and goals as America’s first research university by taking advantage of the thousands of faculty, staff, and graduate students involved in research and creative projects and promoting a culture of research and scholarship that enriches the student experience. HOUR’s mission statement and the programs we support reflect these goals.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Hopkins Office for Undergraduate Research (HOUR) is to foster student engagement and experiential learning and to enrich the educational experience of undergraduate students by promoting research, scholarship, and creative activities through student-mentor relationships.
