For faculty

Getting involved with undergraduate research and individualized student experiences has many benefits to faculty.

Mentoring students in individualized research and scholarly activities is one of the most exciting and rewarding types of teaching. These unique experiences clearly benefit the student taking them beyond classroom learning to participating in real-world applications. These mutually beneficial experiences can also contribute to ongoing faculty research and scholarly agendas by providing support and fresh perspectives.

Mentoring requires energy and resources; however, numerous funding sources are specifically in place to support this type of research. Please recognize that the mentor support letters are an important aspect of student grants.
