The Henry Bellmon Office of Scholar Development and Undergraduate Research at OSU has long been a national leader and innovator in scholar development and, more recently, undergraduate research. The office enhances undergraduate opportunity, encourages student-faculty mentoring, and promotes retention through scholarship/fellowship success, undergraduate research, international experience, and individual/institutional recognition
Science Café OSU is a monthly event that highlights interesting, relevant, and current science research. Each Science Café features a brief presentation by a scientist(s), followed by discussion and questions. Refreshments are provided, and Science Cafés are free and open to the public. No science background is assumed or required. Science Café OSU is sponsored by the OSU Chapter of Sigma Xi, the OSU Library, and the Office of the Vice President for Research at OSU. Science Cafés take place across the country and provide an opportunity for scientists and the public to meet in a casual setting for discussion.

Community Collaboration Opportunities
The Oklahoma WONDERtorium in Stillwater supports hands-on, inquiry-based activities for pre K-12 students in a variety of formats. Their “Museum Without Walls” program provides inquiry-based experiences for classrooms across the county/region.
Stillwater Schools work with many OSU faculty and staff to support hands-on, inquiry-based activities for pre-K - 12 students in conjunction with STEM curricula and classrooms. This includes High School summer interns, field trips, after-school programs, science modules, and other educational and research initiatives.
The Stillwater library provides educational resources for all ages and pursuits and serves the community as a reliable technology and information center.
