A major objective of the Committee on Research is to encourage faculty and student research and creative activity on campus and to enhance that aspect of the educational mission of the College.
The Committee is charged with:
- Facilitating the Student Grant Program for Research and Creative Activity, including reviewing applications and making awards.
- Supporting Student Research and Creative Activity (SRCA) Day.
- Reviewing policies and new initiatives and providing feedback to key stakeholders.

Applications are accepted each semester for funding of up to $1,500/project (plus student and faculty stipends) for students to conduct original research or creative work with faculty sponsorship.
Funding is intended to broaden student engagement in research/CA, whereby a student with little-to-no experience joins a faculty member’s research/CA endeavor as an “observer” or a junior team member. Budgets can include up to $500 for project expenses, plus stipends for both the faculty mentor and the ‘shadow’ student.
The “Course-based” Track supports activities that expose students to the breadth, depth, and application of scholarly/creative work. Faculty can apply for funding of up to $1,000 for a variety of activities that would enhance the research/CA element of a course (both classroom-based and/or remotely taught).

In lieu of a 2018 SRCA Day, the campus hosted the annual SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC) on Friday, April 20, 2018. SURC featured 283 projects presented by students from 35 different SUNY and CUNY institutions in poster sessions, oral presentation sessions, and performance and art venues. These included 139 presentations representing the work of 206 SUNY Oneonta students with 86 faculty mentors fro 27 different departments.
SUPPORT FOR STUDENT TRAVEL TO SCHOLARLY CONFERENCES
Many students also attend and/or present projects at discipline-specific regional, national and international scholarly conferences, with travel funding supported through the D'Antonio Undergraduate Student Travel for Excellence Program and/or the Student Travel for Excellence Fund.
SUNY Oneonta is an institutional member of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).
