Research is an integral part of the college experience, but what are the best ways to foster strong undergraduate research agendas? In this panel discussion, faculty and students will discuss their experiences in mentoring and participating in significant and original undergraduate academic research, scholarship, and creative expression. We will discuss the benefits and challenges of combining academic research with classroom instruction, and mentoring undergraduate scholars.
"When I visited the UO and walked across campus for the first time, I wondered what faculty did in those large buildings, when they weren’t teaching but still working—in their offices and labs. I wanted to know what was happening behind all those closed doors. I was curious, intrigued by the invisible part of a university…" New UO student (excerpted from the McNair Scholars Symposium program).
