Research support for faculty through the URGO Summer Research Program

submitted by

The URGO Summer Research Program is designed to enhance undergraduate student learning and support faculty research and creative activity here on campus. Faculty are the driving force behind the research program, and we want it to be as beneficial to you as possible.
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 is a particularly good fit if you have needs for data entry, transcription, or literature review.
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 and current line of inquiry.
To learn more about URGO summer research and working with a student, visit the “on-campus research” page on the URGO website:
Please encourage interested students to make an appointment with URGO staff by contacting

TODAY: Civic Skills Workshop on Public Narrative

submitted by

Public leadership to make change requires the use of both the “head” and the “heart” to mobilize others to act effectively on behalf of shared values. It engages people in interpreting why they should change the world – their motivation – and how they can act to change it – their strategy. Public narrative is the “why” – the art of translating values into action through stories. Learn about how to craft your own public narrative and relate the story of self, story of us, and story of now.

This workshop builds on other Sabo Center workshops last semester focused on change-making skills. Whether or not you attended a workshop last semester–JOIN US!

TODAY Thursday, January 23
3:40-5 p.m.
OGC 114

Led by Dennis Donovan. Dennis teaches co-creative politics skills to people of all ages in the Twin Cities, across the US, and around the world who want to make positive change in their communities.
