Excellence in Undergraduate Research
Undergraduate research, be it scholarship or creative activity, is a powerful educational practice that has the ability to engage student interest and enthusiasm and to help students launch careers that contribute to innovation and economic development. Thanks to all who participated on Friday, April 12th, in discussions with Dr. Roger Rowlett about aspects of Characteristics of Excellence in Undergraduate Research (COEUR), a summary of best practices that support and sustain highly effective undergraduate research environments. COEUR is intended as a guide for those who oversee undergraduate research and those who wish to build, evaluate, and maintain robust, productive, meaningful, and sustainable undergraduate research programs.
Roger Rowlett serves as the Gordon & Dorothy Kline Professor of Chemistry at Colgate University, where undergraduate students are integral to his research. In his laboratory, Professor Rowlett has supervised the research of more than 150 undergraduates, many of whom have been co-authors of peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals. He has been the recipient of numerous research and/or education grants from the NSF, the NIH, the USDA (and others), and has been successful in securing institutional grants in support of undergraduate research from both federal sources and private foundations. He is an active member of the Council of Undergraduate Research, in which he has served as a facilitator for the CUR "Institutionalizing Undergraduate Research" and "Beginning a Research Program in the Natural Sciences at a Predominantly Undergraduate Institution" institutes. He is a co-author of "Characteristics of Excellence in Undergraduate Research."
Workshop schedules will be posted here as they are announced.
Individual consultations about grant funding options always are available upon request.
