Mentor the Next Generation of Researchers

Faculty play an integral role in the undergraduate research experience; they are the essential links between students and their research projects. As mentors, they provide guidance and encouragement to undergraduate researchers while nurturing the development of independent research skills and increased senses of self-confidence. At UCF, faculty mentors from a wide variety of disciplines work with students across campus on diverse research projects. To review recent undergraduate research projects, please visit the Showcase of Undergraduate Research Excellence website, where programs are available from recent events.
