Undergraduate Research Ambassadors' 1-on-1 Office Hours

URA's Office Hours

Our Office Hours are held as 1-on-1 meetings between the student and the selected Research Ambassador.

Sometimes getting started is the hardest part - Research Ambassadors are here to help guide you and figure out your own interests, introduce you to an exclusive list of research positions at the Institute, and email professors. URA maintains a database of labs interested in having undergrads for this very purpose of helping others start out on the research process. For those already involved in research, we can help with resume edits, applications to PURA and other awards, and practicing for conferences. Stop by Office Hours to speak to an Ambassador this semester and let us help enhance your educational experience today! 

Please use this Resource tab to answer your general questions about undergraduate research. If you have any specific questions, feel free to reach out to a current Undergraduate Research Ambassador! You can find contact information for every URA under the "Current Ambassadors" tab.
