Encourage Students to Learn About Undergraduate Research During Summer Series

Thursday, June 25, 2020 

A Message from Melonie Sexton, Professor, Psychology and Undergraduate Research Coordinator 

Registration for the Undergraduate Research Summer Workshop Series for students is now open.

Over the course of four weeks in July, students will have an opportunity to hear from eight different speakers, all experts in their fields, about how they can get the most out of their undergraduate research experience. This is an excellent opportunity for your students to learn about undergraduate research, so please encourage them to register.

The program, which will be held virtually, was created with input from more than 80 students, and the series is open to students from all disciplines and levels. Session discussions are varied, ranging from how to be a good research mentee, preparing a good resume, presenting on research and learning how undergraduate research can help students push their career forward, among others.

Students can register for as many events as they choose, but they are asked to attend all sessions they register for, as presenters will plan interactive exercises based on the number of registrants.
