Faculty: Support for Summer Programs

Summer Research Period May 26, 2020 - July 31, 2020

Summer 2020 at Virginia Tech will be a unique one, with all in person activities being suspended. This includes undergraduate research. But this does not mean there will be no research taking place! Many of you will be offering students online or virtual research projects throughout the summer. Thank you!

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is here to support you and your summer researchers, particularly in this unique environment. We will provide a comprehensive training and professional development series throughout the summer, for which students can receive certification upon completion. Modules, virtual workshops and seminars are listed on our calendar below; details will be posted here soon. In addition, OUR summer peer mentors will be available to help students virtually and to build a virtual research community. At the end of the summer, should there be enough interest, we will also host our annual research symposium online. All of this is open to summer researchers and other students wanting to make the most of their summer to prepare for research in the Fall or Spring. Please encourage your students to participate. Student information in posted on the Summer Student Page.
