When undergrads get involved in research, they’re more likely to stay at their university, enjoy their courses, and find career success. The University of Kentucky fosters research experiences through the Office of Undergraduate Research, and the student-run Society for the Promotion of Undergraduate Research. Each spring these groups host a showcase that allows students to demonstrate what they’ve learned and communicate why it’s important. In April 2012, 198 students shared their discoveries through poster, oral and table presentations. Hear what a few of these students, and their faculty mentors, had to say about why undergraduate research is important.
