Get Involved

Find a Faculty Mentor

Are you a student currently conducting research? If you haven't registered, please do so here in order to be eligible for our support programs and to learn about other research enhancement opportunities.

A major service orchestrated by the Office of Undergraduate Research is the pairing of faculty mentors with undergraduate protégés to create a formalized, meaningful research experience. Once the mentoring relationship is established, our office can then provide advice, support, and further training, as well as offer a variety of support programs to enhance the overall reserach experience.

Are you an undergraduate student seeking a faculty mentor? Or do you want more information about undergraduate research?

Stop by 219 Funkhouser for our drop-in hours Tuesdays and Wednesdays anytime between 3:00 and 5:00 for more information about getting involved in reserach. This is an opportunity for students to ask questions that are specific to their needs. *Drop-in hours will NOT be held the week of Thanksgiving.

The Office of Undergraduate Research will also hold information sessions periodically throughout each semester. In order to provide a more personalized experience, information sessions are grouped by research interest.  If you are unsure which one to attend or have additional questions, feel free to contact us.  There are no more information sessions for the Fall 2013 semester.  Information sessions will resume in the Spring.  Please check back for the full schedule.
