Why Summer/Winter Research?
Faculty
o
For faculty at more teaching-intensive institutions, the
summer/winter months provide the only time during the
calendar year when faculty can focus their efforts exclusively
on research.
o
For faculty at all institutions, the summer/winter is a time with
fewer external and institutional commitments, and it can afford
the opportunity for more intensive mentoring of
undergraduates.
