How to Incorporate Research into your Undergraduate Program

Tuesday 1:30pm-2:45pm Student Union: Fiesta A and B
Round Table Discussion


Rachel Headley, College of Idaho
Undergraduate research is a high-impact practice that has been tied to increased rates of retention rates, graduation, and graduate school attendance for STEM majors in general and particularly for under-represented and non-traditional students. However, building a successful undergraduate research program, whether in an individual lab or at the department level, often involves intentional design and adjustment of expectations away from those of graduate level researchers. Discussion topics will be guided by participant interest but could include publishing and presenting undergraduate research, setting realistic expectations, incorporating authentic research experiences into coursework, safety concerns, recruitment, and mentoring of undergraduate researchers.
