Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL)

The Illinois Geometry Lab’s mission is to enhance and support undergraduate research within the Department of Mathematics and to support departmental efforts to engage local, state and national communities through outreach.

Illinois Risk Lab (IRisk)

Officially established in Fall 2018, the Illinois Risk Lab (IRisk Lab) grew out of the Undergraduate Research Program in Risk and Actuarial Science, which was sponsored by the Society of Actuaries from 2014 to 2017. IRisk Lab currently serves as an industry-academic collaboration hub, facilitates integration of discovery-based learning experience for students, and showcases state-of-the-art research in all areas of risk analysis and advanced analytics. 

Illinois Combinatorics Lab for Undergraduate Experiences (ICLUE)

This program (initiated Spring 2017) is for undergraduate students who are seriously interested in graduate school in mathematics. Activities can take various forms, including research projects, combinatorics education initiatives (visiting local high schools), seminars with academic visitors, and conference travel.
