To align with recent VPR guidance
regarding undergraduate student workers employed in research settings, the eligibility for in-person credit-bearing undergraduate research has been expanded to include paid undergraduate student researchers who are returning to research programs/laboratories in which they have previous experience. They should be able to function with little further training or direct supervision so that physical distancing can be observed.
The original message describing the in-person undergraduate research request, including a link to the Qualtrics request form, can be found in the 05/08/2020 update below.
Please note that no new undergraduate researchers may be hired or permitted as volunteers. And, as noted previously, some colleges have established policies forbidding in-person undergraduate research for summer 2020. This approval process does NOT supersede any college policies regarding summer undergraduate research.
