Description/Abstract

The College of Arts and Sciences at Barry University offers life sciences research opportunities to undergraduates beginning as early as freshman year. Students conduct research with faculty for credit, hourly wages, or by volunteering. We provide a nurturing environment to motivate student researchers: one-on-one faculty mentoring; peer mentoring; a student led journal and book club; a freshman research club (ROADS); STEM symposium; workshops and social events; presentations at local, state, and national scientific meetings; and community engagement. Outcomes include an increase in student researchers and higher academic performance in ROADS club members; upon graduating, over 75% remain in the sciences. [NIH-RISE Grant; Biology Department]
