Faculty/Research Mentors

Undergraduate Research is one of the keys to making our university a preminent one, and its success depends on the support of our world-class faculty. By engaging students and faculty in the university’s main missions — teaching and research — in a way that gives students one-on-one access to faculty and gives faculty access to the next generation of researchers, the entire university culture benefits.
