Boyer Commission
Working with students to develop undergraduate researchers is the pedagogy of the 21st century.

Faculty serve as mentors for professionalization of undergraduate scholars scross fields of inquiry.

Results: Undergraduate research is standard at Research institutions. We need to build on their praxis at the New U.
Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR)
In August of 2014, CUR approved five strategic areas of focus for engendering undergraduate research
CUR Strategic Focus Points
1. Integrating and Building Undergraduate Research into Curriculum and Coursework—focusing on building curriculum that is both research-based and supports undergraduate research as an outcome of curriculum.

2. Assessment of the Impact of Undergraduate Research—examines the outcomes of undergraduate research on students, faculty, curriculum and institutions.

3. Diversity and Inclusion in Undergraduate Research—offers undergraduate research to a wider audience of undergraduates, faculty, and institutions to increase the diversity of participants, particularly from underrepresented groups and institutions.

4. Innovation and Collaboration in Undergraduate Research—expanding undergraduate research opportunities beyond academic institutions to research collaborations with business and non-profit organizations as well as between higher education institutions.

5. Internationalization and Undergraduate Research—expanding the opportunities for research exchanges, research collaboration, and field research in international settings.
How Can We Grow Undergraduate Scholars
at the New U?
According to the KSU Undergrduate Research Journal Homepage: http://cetl.kennesaw.edu/kennesaw-undergraduate-research-journal-kjur

"Undergraduate research is defined as "an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline" (Council on Undergraduate Research, http://www.cur.org/about.html)

Resources at the New U:
Research and Creativity
The Kennesaw Journal of Undergraduate Research (KJUR) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal dedicated to promoting scholarship among undergraduates at Kennesaw State University. The journal seeks to develop a spirit of inquiry among undergraduate students by providing them an avenue for dissemination and exchange of knowledge.
