Bethea, James; Curtis, Gregg; Edwards, Yolanda V.; Portman, Tarrell A.; Sheu, Hung-Bin; Vazquez-Ramos, Robinson; Yoon, Eunju
Graduate students in counselor education programs are required to take a minimal number of research courses during their tenure as students. The learning experiences from courses or from working on an individual basis with or without the guidance of a research mentor can vary in quality and intensity. The opportunity for graduate students to participate on a research team and work collaboratively on research projects can be a positive professional and personal growth opportunity. This article discusses the development of such a program called the Diverse Research Team at the University of Iowa. Caucasians, African Americans, Latinos, and Asian international students were included. The objectives of the Diverse Research Team (DRT) were to: promote and instill the basic knowledge and skills about research, create a unique team experience, and contribute to the personal development and professional identity of graduate students. Although the benefits of the program were far reaching, some limitations to providing a research team experience were noted, especially those concerning the funding of projects and travel expenses for presentations.
