Description/Abstract

In an effort to understand how to best support students interested in getting involved in research, we investigated the different “getting started” avenues that UCF offers students. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, one-on-one advising, an introduction to research course, and workshops. Using a survey, we made comparisons between the various opportunities to address the efficacy of each approach. The goal was to assess which opportunity renders the highest level of involvement in undergraduate research. After consideration of cost, students impacted, and eventual involvement in research, one-one-one advising seems to be the most effective way of engaging students in undergraduate research opportunities.
