Office of Undergraduate Research Ambassadors

 

The Office of Undergraduate Research is excited to announce the appointment of our next group of student ambassadors! Ambassadors come from a variety of majors and minors, with vast undergraduate research experience on diverse topics in the sciences, engineering, business, liberal arts, and human sciences. Their primary role is disseminating information about undergraduate research. Ambassadors offer regular information sessions on undergraduate research (what it is, why you should do it, how to get involved, and how to find opportunities) and are available for individual drop-in consultations at weekly office hours. All services offered by the ambassadors are free and open to the campus at large. We welcome any student from any discipline who is interested in getting involved in undergraduate research of any kind. Feel free to contact us.

Have a question? Come see us!
