Find a Faculty Mentor

Many faculty members are interested in working with undergraduates on research projects. It's easier than you might think to find a faculty mentor to work with.

Here are some steps to help you get started:

  • Think about your interests and your available time to commit to a research project.
  • Talk with faculty you have taken classes with and ask them to recommend other faculty members to contact.
  • Familiarize yourself with a faculty member's research before you contact them; check their department web pages and research sites for bios and publications.
