How do I find students who can help me with my research?
Faculty should highlight their research on the CNHS website. This is the main attraction for students to contact you.
Do I have to pay a student to work on a research project?

Can students earn credits for the work they do on my research project?

How do I get in touch with undergraduate students who are interested in research?
