Working with undergraduate students on scholarly and creative projects has unique challenges, but can be very fulfilling, both personally and professionally. The resources on these pages are provided to help you support your work with undergraduate scholars, both as inquiry-based learning within your courses and through mentored undergraduate research and creative projects.
If you have questions or additional resources you would like us to add, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
