Faculty: How URGO Can Support Your Research

submitted by obrienk@augsburg.edu

URGO’s summer research program is designed to both enhance undergraduate student learning and support faculty research here on campus. Faculty are the driving force behind the research program, and we want it to be as beneficial to you as possible.

Some of you may have already been approached by students who would like to do summer research through URGO. We encourage you to think about how these students might support your own research agenda. While some advanced students might have a project in mind, we have found that students benefit the most from working within a faculty member’s area of expertise.

While summer is the perfect time to push research projects ahead, we know all too well how quickly the time goes. We have research grants for 400, 200, and 100 student research hours that are designed to provide you with the optimal amount of student research support needed for your project. The 100-hour research assistantship, for example, is a particularly good fit if you have needs for data entry, transcription, or literature review.

To learn more about URGO summer research and working with a student, visit the “on-campus research” page on the URGO website: www.augsburg.edu/urgo

Phase 1 of summer research applications are due January 29th, with complete proposals due February 19th. If you have any questions about being a research mentor, please contact Dixie Shafer at x1447 or shafer@augsburg.edu
