The Undergraduate Research at Eastfield College program is designed to give undergraduates an authentic research experience under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Students will develop relevant academic and professional skills which will assist them in their transition to a four-year institution.
The goals of this initiative are to:
To successfully begin our undergraduate research program here at EFC, we plan to start small and involve only two faculty mentors and student researchers during the in the fall semester and two additional ones in the spring semester. Based on what we learn we will expand the program during subsequent years.
Expectations of the Faculty:
o All positions must give students direct experience with research or scholarship at a level that is consistent with the student’s skills and interests.
Students interested in becoming research assistants must be declared STEM majors and taking majors-level classes. Students will apply for research positions and be interviewed.
We are currently pursuing funding for this project and it is hoped that funds will become available to pay research assistants and to purchase supplies.
