TTU Undergraduate Research Organizations
Supported by the Center for the integration of STEM Education & Research (CISER), the CISER Scholar Service Organization (SSO) is an officially recognized student organization that serves as the organizing entity for the social and service activities of the CISER Scholars. The group meets regularly to plan events, which includes involvement with K-12 schools, tutoring their fellow students, and opportunities for research presentations. The SSO meetings provide an opportunity for scholars to discuss their research projects, educational experiences, and other issues related to undergraduate research and science education.
The Honors College Undergraduate Research Scholars are engaging in research all over the TTU/TTUHSC campuses, working with faculty mentors who want to make a difference and help our Honors students make a difference as well.
The Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) is a society of scientists dedicated to fostering the success of Hispanic/Chicano and Native American scientists—from college students to professionals—in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership.
