Undergraduate Research and Mentoring Education (UR/ME)


Program description

The Undergraduate Research and Mentoring Education (UR/ME) program at Queens College funds outstanding activities in which undergraduates and faculty collaborate in research or other scholarly or creative work. The program is funded by the Office of the Provost and managed by the Center for Teaching and Learning, in consultation with the UR/ME organizing committee. This initiative is based on a program that ran from 1994 until 2004.
