Find a Faculty Mentor
One of the major functions of the Office of Undergraduate Research is the pairing of faculty mentors with undergraduate students to create a formalized, meaningful research experience. Once the mentoring relationship is established, our office provides resesarch assistance, support programs, and further training in research presentation.
Students can volunteer time if they just want to get thir feet wet or they can enroll in more formalized research and/or creative activities opportunites. Either way, help is available through our office.
To initiate the process, please register with our office. Before you register, take some time to think about what it is you might be interested in reseraching. There are endless possibilities on UK's campus and we are here to help you find them. You should receive an email within six weeks, confirming your registration. We will then meet with you at our office (211 Funkhouser) and together, we will search the faculty databse for specific research topics that interest you and narrow your target to three to five mentors.It will be your responsibility to contact those mentors upon leaving our office.
