Undergraduate Research Ambassadors

 

The Undergraduate Research Ambassadors are a team of undergraduate researchers dedicated to helping students from all backgrounds and majors get involved in research and explore their interests. We offer one-on-one peer advising, workshops, class presentations, and more to make research accessible to students across campus.
