This Colloquium on Undergraduate Research is designed for staff and research mentors who work with undergraduate researchers and/or direct and coordinate UW research programs for undergraduate students. Our goal is to enhance participation of American Indian and Alaska Native students by ensuring that staff and research mentors have opportunities to engage in conversations and new understandings that lead to meaningful and effective recruitment, retention, promotion, and graduation support for American Indian and Alaska Native undergraduate students.
