Faculty Summit 2021

The Student Center for Research, Creativity, and Scholarship hosted a faculty summit late in August 2021. The goal was to provided encouraging ideas and best practices for creating course-embedded research or increasing mentored research for undergraduates.
The topic was “Course embedded and Mentored Undergraduate Student Research Experiences: Shared Observations, Lessons Learned, and Best Practices”
The event was a free, virtual event. 272 people registered and we hope that next year that number will increase.
