Beyond REU: New Models for Undergraduate Engagement in LTER

Feedback form is now closed.
The apprenticeship-type, summer-long Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) fellowship is a common way to engage undergraduate students in LTER research. However, this kind of opportunity is not accessible to all students due to lack of information, financial barriers, family and cultural barriers, and the limited numbers of students who can be involved. Please join us in this session to hear about a variety of ways that LTER sites have been engaging undergraduates in LTER research beyond the typical REU model. Presentations about a short intensive experience for first-generation college students (BNZ), a freshman seminar course (HFR), a Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experience using LTER data (HBR), and a course that promotes science communication skills (SEV) will be followed by a workshopping session using the Undergraduate Field Experiences Research Network model, to guide participants’ thinking about diverse ways they might engage undergraduates with LTER research.
