Involving undergraduates in research can be a very rewarding experience for faculty. Undergraduates often bring enthusiasm and fresh ideas and perspectives to a research project. The research can often be of a "high risk/high reward" variety that faculty would not typically explore. Plus, involving students in a research project usual creates a greater connection with students and fosters a memorable learning experience while generating interest in a discipline.

The Office for Undergraduate Research will work closely with UAB faculty to support ongoing undergraduate research efforts, as well as to assist those interested in adopting a research pedagogy and/or serving as a mentor. The following examples will provide some useful references.
