The Second Celebration for Assistant Professors will be held September 26 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Zimmerli Art Museum. All assistant professors are invited to attend and meet other assistant professors from different departments and schools, network across the disciplines with your colleagues, and learn more about exciting initiatives here at Rutgers. This event is sponsored by Byrne Seminars, the Aresty Research Center, the McNair Scholars Program and the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs.
Aresty Peer Instructor Nick Hughes wins a Fulbright Scholarship.
We’re excited that fifteen Aresty students have been named as recipients of prestigious fellowships during the 2012 – 2013 academic year. This group continues the success Aresty students have enjoyed competing for national and international fellowships, awards, and honors. Since 2007, with the assistance of the Office of Distinguished Fellowships, 45 Aresty students have earned distinguished fellowships and scholarships in programs around the world.
The four new Aresty Master Peer Instructors
We have selected four new students as Master Peer Instructors for 2013-2014. In addition to helping mentor and coach our Peer Instructors next academic year, they also serve as mentors to our research assistants and represent the Aresty Research Center at various events. They are currently living on campus with our Summer Science Program students. Master Peer Instructors are selected for their demonstrated leadership, strong research knowledge, and proven dedication to undergraduate research at Rutgers. We are excited to have them on board!

Thanks to the efforts of Rutgers graduate students and staff, the Aresty Research Center evaluates the poster presentations at our annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. The top posters are chosen from three broad categories: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), Humanities, and Social Sciences. After tallying up all of the scores, we’re excited to announce our three winners for 2013. Congratulations to these “Best Posters” from the 9th annual Undergraduate Research Symposium!

The Aresty Undergraduate Research Symposium, which began in its first year with 30 students, has grown dramatically, and this year it includes 450 rising scholars from more than 60 departments, institutes, and centers across our campuses, the largest in the University’s history. The Undergraduate Research Symposium is the most visible example here at Rutgers of the growing community of undergraduate scholars engaged in all aspects of inquiry. Please join us on Friday, April 19, 2013 to celebrate the work of these talented young researchers.
