Upcoming Information Sessions

Presenting academic research is an important skill for undergraduates that may be applied to future academic and career experiences. The research poster session has been a staple of presenting research in the STEM fields, yet is still little known in the humanities and some social science disciplines. The MCUR is hosting workshops on creating a research poster for undergraduate students in the humanities and social sciences. This workshop should be helpful to students planning to participate in Undergraduate Research Day, on April 29, 2015. The workshops will cover principles of good poster design, organization of information, and strategies for printing and presenting your poster.

Please RSVP to ugresearch@umd.edu with the subject line "Poster Workshop" and the date/time you wish to attend. Workshops will take place in the MCUR office, 1201 Marie Mount Hall, across from the Learning Commons. More information about this workshop.

Upcoming Workshops:
   Thursday, Feb 19, 4:00-4:30pm
   Friday, Feb. 20, 11:30am to 12:00 noon

MCUR On-Campus Research Opportunities Database

The Maryland Student Researchers program is a database of on-campus research opportunities for undergraduates. It is designed to:

  • Help undergraduates find research opportunities

  • Help faculty members find research assistants and list on-campus research opportunities

  • List projects that typically call for students to work four to ten hours a week (may be unpaid or paid) under the direction of a faculty mentor on that faculty member’s own research

  • Offer opportunites for studentsto learn skills and gain valuable experience that will enhance their graduate school and job qualifications

  • Provide an opportunity for students to work closely with faculty members outside the classroom

  • Develop professional relationships with faculty and to make significant contributions to faculty research

For Faculty: Submit a Maryland Student Researchers opportunity
