The University of Minnesota has unparalleled opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in real research and creative projects -- from a scientific lab to conducting survey research, to researching historical documents in an Archive, to choreographing a new work. These require students take their skills to the next level. 

Think like a Researcher is a series of workshops designed to help undergraduate students become comfortable with the research skills and tools needed to participate in a variety of exciting research and creative opportunities. It is designed to bring students, especially first year and second-year students, from across the University and different colleges together to learn. Learn about the wide variety of ways to get started with research including volunteer, taking a course, Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, Undergraduate Research Scholarship, International Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, summer research and more. Workshop topics are benefits and challenges of research, finding faculty mentors, a panel of student researchers, examples of student projects and more.
