Danilo Baylen, Kendal Lucas, Runeshia Parker

This panel presentation focuses on the successful experience of undergraduate students as participants in a research and mentoring project. The faculty facilitator will describe the design and management of the experience including initial challenges. The student panelists will discuss their profiles (knowledge and skills sets), individual projects and outcomes (presentations and publications), and insights in becoming researchers, critical thinkers, and active and engaged collaborators. They will also share stories about personal growth and decision-making towards potential professional career paths. This session will benefit those interested in mentoring undergraduate students in co-producing scholarly works and will provide opportunities for the audience to share their own experiences in working with undergraduate students as well as viewpoints in socializing them to the research process.
