Description/Abstract

The University of Central Florida (UCF) has over 6000 new transfer students enroll each academic year. Often these students only find out about opportunities to engage in research towards the end of their two year stay at UCF. Therefore, to help transfer students engage in research earlier in their career at UCF, we developed a three-day summer term academy. The program was developed in 2004 and has since expanded to include current UCF rising sophomores and juniors. This session will aid participants in developing their own summer research academies and more broadly, discuss best practices.
