Faculty/Research Mentors

Undergraduate research is one of the keys to making our university a preeminent one, and its success depends on the support of our world-class faculty and community partners. 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 research mentors and gives mentors access to the next generation of researchers, the entire university culture and Tallahassee community benefits.
