What is the RLC?

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. Dates and times will be determined based on student availability. 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 SURP and RAINs Applications
