(If you’re a student looking for information on publishing your own research, please see the information we have in our section for students.)
The Director, Associate Director and the graduate assistants have published articles about establishing an office of undergraduate research, the role of mentoring in graduate education, introducing student inquiry in large introductory classes, organizing symposia for state legislators, and introducing research experiences in courses by collaborating with Graduate Research Consultants. These articles can be viewed or downloaded. We are grateful to the Council on Undergraduate Research, who holds the copyright for several of these articles, to allow us to provide web access to them. The mission of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship. CUR and its affiliated colleges, universities, and individuals share a focus on providing undergraduate research opportunities for faculty and students at predominantly undergraduate institutions. CUR believes that faculty members enhance their teaching and contribution to society by remaining active in research and by involving undergraduates in research. CUR’s leadership works with agencies and foundations to enhance research opportunities for faculty and students and provides support for faculty development. We also thank the American Society for Cell Biology who holds the copyright for articles published in their Newsletter for permission to post copies here.
