- Presentation Opportunities
The Research for Undergraduates Network (RUN) is a space for undergraduate research mentors (faculty, graduate students, & post-docs) and those who facilitate undergraduate research programs at OSU to collaborate and share promising practices. Many of us do this work in silos across the university. Instead, let’s come together and make all of our efforts stronger!
Engaging Undergraduates in Research - offered via Zoom
Those who attend this session will gain valuable insight into best practices for engaging in research with undergraduates, learn how to use OSU’s sample mentoring agreement, and explore sources of financial support for students engaged in research during the 2020-21 school year. This offering is co-sponsored by the College of Agricultural Sciences and the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP).
“Lunch & Learn” Series - offered via Zoom
These informal lunch-time sessions will allow us to dig deeper into pressing issues related to undergraduate research at OSU. This series is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Institutional Diversity.
Graduate-level Course: Methods in Undergraduate Mentoring
Students in this course will identify current challenges that students face when accessing and succeeding in undergraduate research experiences, develop an undergraduate research mentoring agreement, cultivate skills and tools for being an effective and empathetic mentor, and learn how to leverage mentoring experience when applying for jobs. This course was offered for the first time in Spring 2020 with 19 students enrolled across five academic colleges. Stay tuned for registration info!
