Abundance of riches - too many good students

Dear IONiC community,

I'm sure many of you are in a similar situation right now, so I thought I'd post a general plea to VIPEr-space. Things are tighter than usual for us this summer with respect to supporting summer research students. Most of our students tend to stay here to do summer research, with only a handful going to other REU programs or internships. But this summer we have many more qualified students than we have positions.


Teaching credit for undergraduate research?

Submitted by Joanne Stewart / Hope College on Mon, 10/11/2010 - 09:32

Do any of your schools give faculty teaching credit for doing undergraduate research? It seems like some of you have a required senior thesis and you get some credit for supervising some number of those.

Are there any other ways you're "rewarded" for supervising undergraduate research?
