Description/Abstract

Undergraduate Research programs are not only possible in a twoyear college setting but are necessary for students to begin thinking in an analytical way about their area of study and to understand the importance of research in any field. Two-year colleges can introduce research methodology and appropriate presentation methods by using smaller scale research topics and projects. We will discuss how we started our Research in Undergraduate Education Program at Santa Fe College, formerly Santa Fe Community College, and show how it has grown over its seven year history. We’ll leave lots of time for questions!
