Center for Undergraduate Research
shares research at national conference

Our Center staff had the opportunity to put the skills that we teach to good use this summer.  We presented research...about undergraduate research!  John Augusto, Nikki Perry, and Dyan Morgan collected, analyzed, and presented data about the Research Experience Program to faculty and staff from colleges and universities across the country at the CUR Undergraduate Research Program Directors division meeting in June in Orange, California.  We came back with many great ideas for the coming year.....stay tuned!
