Author(s): Carpi, A., & Lents, N. H.

While undergraduate research has been lauded as a transformative experience that helps nurture future scientists, its effect on institutions is often underappreciated. This is especially true for underfinanced, public, and minority-serving institutions, which are the least able to offer such experiences to students.

 

In Their Own Words: Anthony Carpi

Dr. Anthony Carpi, professor and dean of research at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, (PAESMEM 2009), discusses his findings on whether undergraduate research experiences lead to a new interest among students in pursuing a graduate degree. Carpi’s article in the Journal of Research in Science Teaching explores the outcomes of a program he leads at his college that paired undergraduate students with faculty engaged in university research projects.

Undergraduate Research Experiences for STEM Students: Successes, Challenges and Opportunities (February 2017)

Undergraduate research has a rich history, and many practicing researchers point to undergraduate research experiences (UREs) as crucial to their own career success. There are many ongoing efforts to improve undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education that focus on increasing the active engagement of students and decreasing traditional lecture-based teaching, and UREs have been proposed as a solution to these efforts and may be a key strategy for broadening participation in STEM.
