Facilitating Effective Research


There are a host of resources available to assist UROP supervisors - from UROP staff and online resources to the Facilitating Effective Research (FER) workshops that we host throughout the academic year. The tips and resources provided in this section derive from discussions during these FER workshops. While these tips are by no means exhaustive, we hope that they will assist you in mentoring UROP students. We welcome any additional tips or feedback to help us improve these resources and/or make them more accessible to those who serve as research mentors.

Facilitating Effective Research (FER) Workshops

FER is a multi-faceted program designed to help graduate students, post-docs, and others who regularly work with UROP students become more effective research mentors. The sessions are offered throughout academic year. Details are posted here as sessions are scheduled and are announced via email to graduate administrators, the GSC, etc. If you are interested in attending a session or would like a smaller session just for your department or lab group, please feel free to contact Melissa Martin-Greene, Senior Program Coordinator, UROP.
