The "Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)" Kicks into Gear
Posted: January 1, 2008
SURE is a summer internship program for undergraduates from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who are interested in research in psychology. It provides stipends for students to conduct 2 months of full-time (40 hours/week) summer research under the supervision of a UT-Austin Department of Psychology faculty member. This is the third group of students enrolled in the program, which launched in the summer of 2006.
Fabian is a graduate student researcher in Dr. Manuel Ramirez' Multicultural Psychology Lab, which, among its other goals, seeks to encourage undergraduate students from underrepresented ethnic/racial groups to pursue careers in social science research and mental health service.
To break the ice and get students comfortable speaking in front of the group, each student had to introduce another student as the most interesting person they have ever met. In this picture, Ricardo and Tracie are getting to know Diandrea before they introduce her to the rest of the group.
