Fostering a departmental culture of undergraduate research: A five-year case study
Presentation given at the Council on Undergraduate Research Biennial Conference, Alexandria, VA.
Malachowski (2017) has argued that the most significant barrier to undergraduate research is departmental culture. This session will present the results of a five-year case study of an initiative to promote a culture of undergraduate research in a department at an R3 doctoral university. Topics to be discussed will be couched in Malachowski’s (2017) recommendations and include start-up and sustaining funding sources, obtaining faculty buy-in, faculty workload and promotion and tenure considerations, administrative organization and management, student recruitment, project resources, and products/outcomes. Both successes and failures will be highlighted.
