Welcome to the Undergraduate Research web site. 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 important skills such as critical thinking, information gathering and processing, and effective communication.
