2.   Undergraduate Research Fair (Oct. 4, 2011) – Mary Schutten

The undergraduate research fair is slated for Oct 4, 2011. How will your unit share the opportunities to work with faculty? This may be a time to brainstorm ways to use this event to connect with new students to the program. The Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (OURS) supports the many creative/scholarly faculty and student collaborations.  Susan Mendoza (mendozsu@ gvsu.edu) of OURS (gvsu.edu/ours) is available to share the many resources that are available as well as help units develop information for the fair.
