What Undergraduate Research Students Can Expect of Me


As a mentor, I will:


  • respect the studentís ideas and take all questions seriously.


  • assist the student in developing an interesting and workable research question.


  • provide guidance in the ethical conduct of experiments.


  • assist the student in finding the resources necessary to conduct the research project.


  • assist the student when necessary with field or laboratory aspects of the research project.


  • provide assistance and quality control for the production of grant proposals, reports, presentations, or (if weíre really lucky and have cool results) manuscripts for publication.


  • evaluate the studentís performance and provide constructive feedback.
