|Audio conference on undergraduate research is Dec. 12|
The Council on Undergraduate Research President Kerry Karukstis will present an audio conference, "Promoting an Undergraduate Research Culture," at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12. The 30-minute talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
Those who wish to participate can do so in Conference Room 1917, School of Medicine and Health Sciences (north wing of the main building). A PowerPoint presentation will be shown in conjunction with the audio-only conference.
Karukstis will discuss how institutions are creating undergraduate research programs as they look to promote closer connections between professors and students, to expose students to the excitement of intellectual discovery, and to enhance student learning. Her talk is intended for provosts and deans, academic affairs and research officers, and faculty members.
Karukstis is a professor of chemistry at Harvey Mudd College. She received both her B.S. degree in chemistry (1977) and her Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry (1981) from Duke University. After her postdoctoral work in the Laboratory of Chemical Biodynamics at the University of California - Berkeley, she joined the faculty at Harvey Mudd College in 1984 and regularly teaches courses in general chemistry, physical chemistry and biophysical chemistry.
