This minisite is designed to emphasize the benefits of and improve undergraduate research in the human sciences associated with engagement: student learning, retention, and possible connections to post-baccalaureate study and involvement. The resources provided here are rooted in enduring principles which began with the relationship between Telemachus and Mentor in Greek Legend.
