Developing Competency & Confidence


Online via Zoom

Are you wondering if you have the ability to contribute to research and scholarly activities at MU?  Are you curious how to become a valued team member?  How do you know when you have “made it”?  A panel of undergraduates will discuss their experiences and offer concrete suggestions on how to become an accepted and contributing research team member no matter your prior experience. This session will be especially helpful for first generation college students and those new to research.
