Our campus has an expansive history of undergraduate research with significant efforts dating to 1986 with the creation of UROP and the Biological Sciences Initiative in 1989.  We encourage you to connect with the community and explore the resources here to advance your work with students and welcome insight about additional resources.

Building Teams provides guidence in recruitment and selection, Inclusive Mentoring offers best practices in maintaining inclusive working relationships and environments, and Next Steps highlights some of the ways mentors can advance their work.  Pathways from Opportunity to Engagement shows how storytelling can help students contextualize failure while managing perceived deficits and Research and Creative Work in a Pandemic offers resources for the moment.

Connect with the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and check out the Resources and References to continue learning, find supportive communities—and campus collaborators.  Contact us to offer feedback and additional resources.
