This workshop is designed for new and future geosciences faculty, including graduate students and post-docs preparing to enter academic positions, who are interested in developing an undergraduate research program, as well as faculty interested in expanding their research programs to include undergraduates. The workshop will cover, and participants will receive materials on, funding opportunities (including National Science Foundation), project selection and mentoring of undergraduates, and institutional support for undergraduate research. Facilitators will work with the participants to develop their own strategy for developing a research program involving undergraduates. This workshop is a partnership between AGU Education and the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), Geosciences Division.
