Description/Abstract

Introduction: Dr. Debra Reinhart, Assistant Vice President for Research and Commercialization.

Speaker: Dr. Linda Blockus-University of Missouri-Columbia.

In 2012 the Council on Undergraduate Research published “Characteristics of Excellence in Undergraduate Research” (COEUR) for institutions and programs to use as an aspirational blueprint to inform discussions and plans for continued improvement and new initiatives. COEUR was designed to be adaptable and applicable to all types of institutions and academic disciplines, with the users choosing the sections that best address their challenges, circumstances, and priorities. The major components of COEUR and how it may be used will be briefly presented. The focus of the talk will delve into a proposed framework for understanding the value added differences of undergraduate research engagement, a project, an experience, and a program and how these different layers might fit into COEUR as a guideline for desired success.
