Council

Undergraduate Research Council

We strongly encourage eligible members of the UWW community to consider serving on the Undergraduate Research Council as a member or an associate.

Council members have responsibility for supporting the work of the undergraduate research program (URP) with the goal of increasing undergraduate student participation in research experiences on campus, providing them with a variety of mentored research opportunities and encouraging and supporting faculty involvement in undergraduate research. They are tasked with providing a disciplinary- and College-specific perspective on issues related to promoting and implementing undergraduate research. Eligible members are full time tenure/tenure-track faculty members. Up to 4 members are allowed from each College (not including URP administrative staff).

Council associates provide assistance in supporting the work of the undergraduate research program (URP) with the goal of increasing undergraduate student participation in research experiences in all colleges on campus, providing them with a variety of mentored research opportunities and encouraging and supporting faculty involvement in undergraduate research. They serve as a resource in providing a disciplinary- and College-specific perspective on issues related to promoting and implementing undergraduate research. Eligible members are full time tenure/tenure-track faculty and academic staff members (instructional and non-instructional). Council associates do not vote, and there is no limit on the number of Associates from each College/discipline/campus unit.
