Interested in doing research but don’t have a mentor? Participate in the Research Learning Community (RLC) and learn research writing techniques, receive assistance finding a mentor, discuss criteria and tips for successful SURP and RAINS applications. The Research Learning Community is an eight-week paid opportunity that introduces students to effective search strategies and research writing techniques. Students meet once a week for two hours to discuss that session’s topic. Homework is minimal and interdisciplinary collaboration is emphasized.

Participants in the RLC will:

  • Gain professional development and research experience
  • Benefit from staff mentoring
  • Expand their resumes / CVs
  • Receive priority for future SURP and RAINs Applications
