CUR: Beginning a Research Program in the Natural Sciences at a Predominantly Undergraduate Institution Institute

Beginning a Research Program in the Natural Sciences at a Predominantly Undergraduate Institution Institute

Starting a successful research program and doing scholarly work at a predominantly undergraduate institution pose unique challenges for a beginning faculty member. A goal of the institute is to give individual pre-tenured faculty members the opportunity to learn from and discuss with experienced faculty how to establish and manage a research program with undergraduates. While at the institute, participants will also prepare plans for starting and/or advancing their individual research programs at their respective campuses. A range of topics will be covered during the institute that show ways to achieve career success in undergraduate research by learning how to:

  • select undergraduate researchers
  • mentor student researchers and develop and use their research skills
  • manage time - balancing teaching, research and service activities
  • develop and select research projects appropriate for undergraduates
  • adapt to an undergraduate research environment vs. that in graduate school
  • link research to the classroom and
  • develop grantsmanship skills related to gaining external and institutional research support
