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.

Many faculty members think that supervising undergraduate research is a poor use of their time for several reasons, including (a) an inability to get credit toward tenure and promotion, (b) the lack of quality research that is produced by undergraduates, (c) the lack of publications resulting from undergraduate research, (d) the lack of funding for undergraduate research, and (e) the amount of time it takes to train undergraduates, who often graduate before the project is finished. Come join us for a conversation regarding common misconceptions about undergraduate research as well as strategies to address such misconceptions.

Are you beginning a new research program and want to learn how to involve undergraduates? Are you new to Kennesaw State University and want to learn more about how to involve undergraduates in your scholarship? Have you recently started involving undergraduates in your research and want to learn more about how to make the process easier and more efficient for yourself?

This workshop is designed to address issues faced by faculty members who are just starting to collaborate with undergraduate researchers. In particular, we will address the following issues:

1. Why should I conduct research with undergraduates?
2. How can I be a good mentor to my undergraduate researchers?
3. What kind of funding is available for undergraduate research?
4. How can I make the process less time-consuming for myself?
