Before the faculty members begin mentoring their students in the undergraduate research group, they will attend a three-day summer workshop in the Salt Lake City/Provo, UT area. The purposes of this workshop are to discuss logistics of the program, present ideas about effectively working with undergraduate research groups, and provide resources to help undergraduates prepare for graduate school. At this time we will set up an electronic listserv in which the participating professor can discuss questions, problems, and/or experiences they are having as they work with the undergraduate research groups at their institution. During this workshop there will also be some social activities and (time permitting) a hike in the local mountains and/or a visit to nearby sites. Participants’ costs to attend the workshop will be covered by CURM (travel and lodging) up to $650.
