Conference - Mentorship, Collaboration and Undergraduate Research
Monday, February 13, 2006 (Around 8 years ago)
The CUR Institute will be held July 21-23, 2006 at Bridgewater State College in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. This workshop will bring together teams of three to five faculty members and administrators engaged in enhancing undergraduate research opportunities at their home institutions, focusing on undergraduate research as faculty development, student-based inquiry and institutional support structure. The three days will consist of plenary lectures presented by facilitators associated with CUR interspersed with individual team meetings with CUR mentors. Faculty and administrators from disciplines throughout the social sciences and humanities will spend the weekend discussing models of undergraduate research, mentorship and collaboration; what “research” and “mentorship” mean in different disciplines in the social sciences and humanities; assessing the value of undergraduate research; and means of augmenting funding for undergraduate research internally and externally.
