The Center facilitates student research by providing assistance in research proposal development, selection of faculty supervisors, the IRB approval process, and locating research facilities, sites, and resources. In addition, the Center assists students and their supervisors in the publication and dissemination of the research results. We will provide leadership in the development of undergraduate research protocols that can be duplicated within the university and other post secondary institutions.
Many faculty members from the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Education, and the School of Engineering, as affiliates of the Whitaker Center, encourage the involvement of undergraduate students in their research activities. The list below contains those faculty members that are interested in serving as research mentors, along with their respective interests. Please peruse the list and feel free to contact any faculty member that might be suitable for your needs.
