Undergraduate Research

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.
