MENTORING AN UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCHER SIGN-UP

Have you been wondering...
How can I Make mentoring an undergraduate research student work for me?

If so, please join us for a discussion with experienced faculty mentors of undergraduate researchers. We will explore questions such as:

  • Can undergraduates be guided to do the kind of research I do?
  • How do I find good undergraduate researchers?
  • How is mentoring undergraduates different from mentoring graduate students or postdoctoral fellows?
  • How could I handle personal conflicts among the students working with me?
  • How can the Undergraduate Research Program support my mentoring work with students? 

Bring these and any other questions or concerns you may have about mentoring undergraduate students to the discussion.

Discussion will be facilitated by:
Simone DeVore (Special Education, URP Associate Director, devores@uww.edu )
Catherine Chan (Chemistry and Biological Sciences; Undergraduate Research Program director, chanc@uww.edu )
Seth Meisel (History; Undergraduate Research Program director emeritus,meisels@uww.edu ).
