STUDENTS: Getting Started in Research

Why should I do research?

Participating in a research or creative project allows you to become an active participant in your learning process. Explore a topic you feel passionate about at the same time you learn new skills like critical thinking, problem solving, team work, and networking.

Where do I start?

Finding a mentor is key. A mentor is a faculty member who collaborates with you supervising your research or creative project. Mentors offers guidance and they love sharing their experiences with students.

Where can I go to learn more?

Here is a chapter from "The Indispensable Guide to Undergraduate Research" (reproduced here with permission).
