Our mission is to oversee programs that provide opportunities for students to engage in research with a Dartmouth College faculty mentor. These close collaborations between faculty and students provide a forum for faculty to teach and mentor undergraduates on a one-on-one basis outside the classroom. Students acquire first hand experience in an academic field of research while developing skills such as critical thinking, information processing, and effective communication.
If you have research program questions and cannot find the answers on the UGAR website, follow this link: UGAR appointment to schedule a meeting (Wednesdays from 8am-9am and 3pm-4pm in Parker House 201)
For an appointment outside of office hours, between terms, or in summer: blitz "undergraduate research"
