Broadening Participation in Undergraduate Research
Karukstis, Kerry K.
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n11 p1474-1476 Nov 2008
Numerous reports and initiatives are focused on the need to prepare a diverse workforce for the 21st Century. Organizations such as the National Academies, the Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Engineering, the Association of American Colleges and Universities, and Building Engineering and Science Talent (BEST) are calling for collective action at departmental, institutional, and national levels. Responding to that challenge, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and its members have undertaken a variety of initiatives to extend research opportunities to undergraduate students who have not traditionally participated. These activities are part of continuous and collective efforts to help students, faculty, institutions, and the research community tap into the benefits of a vibrant and inclusive undergraduate research program.
