Serving as a faculty advisor or research mentor to a College student is an important role. Students value the opportunity to conduct research under the guidance of a faculty member or research mentor and the College values your contribution to undergraduate education by providing meaningful undergraduate research experiences that allow a student to engage deeply in their discipline and grow as scholars.
We are grateful for faculty members’ generous mentoring and for their rich contributions to the University's vibrant undergraduate research community. If there is any way the Center for Research and Fellowships can be of assistance to you, or if you have any suggestions about new programs or greater support systems for undergraduate research in your department, please let us know. We are also available to consult on developing new opportunities, recruiting for existing research experiences, and connecting students and faculty with campus, national, and international funding to support undergraduate research activities.
