Undergraduate Researcher for a Day (UR for a Day)

Undergraduate Researcher (UR) for a Day provides a detailed overview of what a typical, discipline-specific day as a researcher entails. This overview is given in the form of a small-group discussion with a UT faculty researcher or his/her assistant researchers.

— What is (insert interest) research and what are the benefits of pursuing it?
— What are the commitments of research and where can I find research opportunities?

If these are questions that you’d like the answers to, or if you have more detailed questions, look forward to the UT researchers and/or their representatives answering them!

You will meet with two faculty researchers; please rank your preferences in the survey form link provided:

*Dr. Noel Busch-Armendariz, represented by Deidi Olaya (graduate student), Social Work, Institute on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
