The Office of Undergraduate Research announces its Fall 2018 calendar for the Getting Started in Research Workshop.
During this workshop, we will discuss the various forms of undergraduate research that take place on campus, guide students to develop a plan of action to locate research opportunities on campus, and discuss ways to contact faculty research mentors. Students will leave the workshop with (1) a better understanding of undergraduate research and how it takes place on our campus, (2) increased confidence to contact faculty research mentors, and (3) a list of faculty mentors to contact.
Each workshop is limited to the first 50 applicants. Confirmed participants will be contacted in advance of the workshop. Please note, workshops are limited to 50 students to allow for individualized instruction.
- Participation is by advanced registration only; see calendar below. Students are encouraged to register as soon as possible, as these workshops fill up very quickly.
- Students may register for one workshop ONLY; duplicate registrations across multiple dates will be deleted.
- Students must bring either a laptop computer or tablet device to the workshop.
- Students are expected to commit to the full time requirements of the workshop; please do not register for these workshops if you plan to leave early or arrive late due to other scheduling conflicts.
