Undergraduate Research

Investigate an area of agriculture and the life sciences related to humans with mentoring and guidance from faculty in ALCE. Topics can include or be related to:

  • equity & inclusion in agriculture
  • education & evaluation in agriculture
  • another topic agreed on in agriculture & social science               

Research is a great way to learn more about a topic, investigate a question, and explore if research could make a great career choice for your future. You will learn more about your topic but also the research process. I anticipate from you:

  • Clear communication on a regular basis
  • Weekly team mtgs for check-in's
  • Accountability that tasks will be completed
  • Willingness to learn and be challenged
  • Active participation in google drive/weekly mtgs/anticipated submissions to conferences & manuscripts forthcoming
