Description/Abstract

Conceiving the idea of a new undergraduate research program is, like conceiving an egg, easier than raising the hatchling program. The challenges that face new undergraduate research programs include management, institutional support, immediate funding sources, persistent funding sources, student interest, undergraduate student limitations, faculty participation, and sustainability. Fresh ideas and solutions to tackle the developmental hurdles will be presented and further discussed using a case study from a two-year Florida college hatching its first research program.
