Anchoring Research

Anchoring Research Graphic

The Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship strives to support you along your academic journey, no matter what stage you are at. This is why we are so proud to announce our new “Anchoring Research” training program, launching this semester.

What is Anchoring Research?

Anchoring Research is a workshop seminar series for students interested in research, and for students with prior experience in research. Each session is led by speakers from various departments on campus, and designed to equip you with the confidence and skills you need to excel in research at GVSU and beyond.

What will I learn?

Students with no prior experience in research will learn about the various aspects of research, how to communicate professionally at GVSU and beyond, and what career paths are available in research.

Students who already have experience in research will learn how to further develop the skills they’ve acquired, how to communicate professionally at GVSU and beyond, and how to effectively highlight their research experiences as they prepare to graduate.

How can I get started?

Sign-up on Sprout to register for the sessions you are interested in, and one week before the presentation you will receive a Zoom link to attend live. Presentation slides and/or Zoom recordings will be available for students with time conflicts.
