We know that participation in undergraduate research increases retention, persistence, and interest in pursuing advanced degrees for all students. Furthermore, students who participate in undergraduate research are more confident, feel more accomplished, are better communicators, have a deeper sense of belonging to the professional community and discipline, and are more likely to identify career goals.
Studies show that faculty who mentor undergraduate students in research report feelings of career satisfaction, renewed professional energy, and institutional commitment as well as greater research productivity.
