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, 2013, 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.
