Faculty Summer Workshop

Before the faculty members begin mentoring their students in the undergraduate research group, they will attend a three-day summer workshop at BYU. 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, such as a banquet, a hike in the local mountains, and (time permitting) a possible outdoor excursion (e.g., a national park, white water rafting). Participants’ costs to attend the workshop will be covered by CURM (travel and lodging up to $650).
