Description/Abstract

Unlike undergraduates at many universities, most community college students do not have the opportunity to participate in research experiences, nor do they have ready access to a research environment. This connection comes through collaboration amongst their professors with scientific leaders of the day. We initiated an effort to promote engagement in undergraduate research and faculty development. Collaboration between a faculty member at Seminole State College and a principal investigator at the SanfordBurnham Institute was developed. This collaboration resulted in the creation of 5 internships for students in the STEM Research course.
