Finding a Faculty/Lab Workshop

Looking to get started in research? Have no idea what to do first? Know you need to reach out to faculty but find them a tad bit scary?  Never fear! OUR is here!

In both the Finding a Faculty Mentor and Finding a Lab Mentor workshops, you will learn how to search for faculty, how to identify potential research mentors, and how to communicate effectively with the mentors you identify. We hold one of the workshops every week of the academic year, so it should be easy to find one that fits your schedule!  Finding a Faculty Mentor workshops are appropriate for anyone considering doing any type of research, whereas Finding a Lab Mentor workshops are most appropriate for people interested in lab-based disciplines. No need to attend both! There is significant overlap.


The only things you need to bring are your own interests/ideas about what you might want to explore and something to take notes!
