Participants in this book club will receive a complimentary copy of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) manual entitled "How to Mentor Undergraduate Researchers." This session will be devoted to a lively discussion of the tips described in this manual. According to CUR, "How to Mentor Undergraduate Researchers is written for faculty members and other researchers who mentor undergraduates. It provides a concise description of the mentoring process, including the opportunities and rewards that a mentoring experience provides to both students and mentors. This updated How to Mentor handbook reflects many changes over the last decade in the scope and extent of research opportunities for undergraduates in the United States. Reflecting the current expansion of CUR into all undergraduate disciplines, in this edition experts in a variety of different fields were called upon to expand the handbook's usefulness across all areas of undergraduate research endeavors. Advice is valid for both on- and off-campus research experiences and most academic disciplines."
