Undergraduate research at UNL includes the arts, education, engineering, humanities, and the traditional sciences like chemistry, biology, and physics. Research projects range from studying switchgrass plants grown for biofuel to identifying and cataloging the poems of Walt Whitman, from exploring the effects of background noise on productivity to creating textiles made of corn. The UCARE program is supported by generous gifts from the Pepsi Quasi Endowment and Union Bank & Trust.
