A research mentor works with her student to collect samples from the Kansas River.

For Mentors

Research mentors are a key component of an undergraduate research experience. We are here to help you succeed.

How We Can Help:

Resources & training

We connect mentors to resources for you and your students.  Our office can also facilitate workshops and provide best practices for mentoring undergraduate researchers.

Connect with students

Mentors interested in finding a student to work with can post a volunteer/course credit opportunity through our Center and connect with students through the Emerging Scholars Program.


We provide visibility for the work of undergraduate research mentoring through mentor spotlights, faculty awards, and non-faculty awards.
