Research mentorship at UVM is an integral part of the student research experience 

 

Training future creators, scholars, and innovators 

Providing mentorship to undergraduate researchers can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience. Positive mentorship can instill growth, curiosity, and confidence in students across their academic achievements and beyond. Positive mentorship can benefit the mentor as well by enhancing research productivity, fostering collaborations, and engaging with hands-on learning and teaching in your field. 

Undergraduate Research Funding

Student Research Conference (SRC)

The Student Research Conference is an annual event that occurs each spring on campus. Students across all academic disciplines and levels are encouraged to participate and we welcome faculty to propose special topics/sessions within their academic specialities. If you would like to propose a session, please contact the Student Research Conference Coordinator at Vivien.Enriquez@uvm.edu. Want materials for your class or research group? FOUR can provide 1) save the date cards, 2) event posters, and 3) pre-formatted emails to promote the SRC. Contact the SRC Coordinator for physical and/or digital materials.

Involving your class(es) in the SRC

Classes at the 200-level are allowed to present their work at the SRC. There are two ways classes can present their work: 
  • Individual Presentations: The faculty member must provide the SRC coordinator with a roster prior to registration. Individual students are treated much like general presenters. Individual presentations will be grouped under the same special session/special topic title (to distinguish the class). The 2022 SRC is a hybrid event. Please notify the SRC Coordinator if presentations will be in-person (oral presentations only) or virtual (poster or oral presentations). The instructing professor will be the "faculty sponsor" on each presentation. 
  • Group Presentations: One presenter from each group will register with the necessary information for co-presenters. The faculty member must provide the SRC coordinator with a roster prior to registration. Individual students are treated much like general presenters. The 2022 SRC is a hybrid event. Please notify the SRC Coordinator if presentations will be in-person (oral presentations only) or virtual (poster or oral presentations). The instructing professor will be the "faculty sponsor" on each presentation.
