Building Undergraduate Research networks (BURN) seeks to increase the number of students engaged in high-quality collaborative research across all disciplines in WCHSS.As defined by the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), undergraduate research is an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline. Undergraduate research—a term that encompasses scholarship and creative activity—is recognized as a high-impact educational practice that has the ability to capture student interest and create enthusiasm for, and engagement, in an area of study.
The first step is to find a mentor. Connecting with a CRASSH Group is easy! Contact the group coordinator and inquire about openings in the group. Then, download the BURN contract, fill it out with your mentor’s help and submit it to the WCHSS Dean’s office
