Faculty Deadlines Approaching

Calling all Faculty!

The Aresty Center serves faculty by advertising research projects, helping to identify strong undergraduate researchers, and guiding students toward structured, professional engagement with research. Our success supporting undergraduates depends on the strength of our faculty mentors. Deadlines to submit projects for our 2016 Summer Science and 2016-2017 Research Assistant Program are fast approaching. Details below:

For faculty in the sciences, the Aresty Summer Science program pairs rising sophomores, with little or no experience, to research projects over the summer. Students are required to work full-time in the lab setting, and receive structured mentoring from both faculty participants and the Aresty Center. Students are provided with a $3,000 stipend. More information on designing a project can be found here. You can also create a new project or replicate an existing one. Submissions are due Thursday, February 4.

For faculty of all disciplines, the Aresty Research Assistant program pairs rising sophomores, juniors and seniors with little or no experience, to research projects over the academic year. Students selected for the program do five hours of research per week (or more by arrangement with their professor). Selected students also attend two 60-minute peer group meetings per month with other undergraduate researchers to practice scholarly communication, explore research ethics, design posters, and discuss research methodology. More information on designing a project can be found here. You can also create a new project or replicate an existing one. Submissions are due Tuesday, March 1.
