Description/Abstract

As undergraduate research programs grow, administrators face the dizzying task of managing an ever-increasing amount of applications, awards, events, and emails. Collecting and processing all this information can consume administrators. Fortunately, several easyto-use, and often free, software platforms have emerged that can reduce paper, increase transparency and collaboration, and automate processes. This presentation surveys the current software landscape, and drawing on existing practices in an undergraduate research office, illustrates potential applications for program directors. Specifically, the presentation discusses tools for simple form building (e.g., Formstack), task and project management (e.g., Asana), communication (e.g., Slack), and event management (e.g., Sched).
