Summer Research Programs and REU’s Toolkit

This webpage is intended for faculty and staff of summer research programs.

Welcome! This web page is for faculty and staff that coordinate NC State Summer REU’s, Summer Research Programs and PI’s of independent summer researchers.

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) will maintain a Google Group to correspond with faculty and staff coordinators and faculty working with summer researchers. To join the group, please search Google Groups for “NC State Summer REU’s and Summer Research Programs” and request to be added.

To register your Summer 2022 program, please submit it as soon as possible with this form. Please visit the “2022 Summer Research Programs at NC State” page to view currently promoted programs.

Please make sure to fill out any necessary paperwork with the ORI regarding visiting scientists. Questions about the visiting scientist agreement should be sent to the ORI.

Program coordinators will also need to complete any paperwork associated with hosting minors on campus if applicable.

Join the OUR Google Group for all the latest updates

Activity Listings for Summer 2022

If you did not submit registration preferences for your group, please email Dr. Showalter ASAP with the number of students and names (for planning purposes) in your program.

Registration will be available soon. Similar to Spring Symposium, presentations will be scheduled based on theme (program) and mentor. As mentors approving submissions, please check your Spam folder. Sometimes the platform sends emails here erroneously. Have a student/s without a unity ID? Email the OUR for how to register them.

Encourage students to both register and submit their posters EARLY. There will be a lot of students vying to get these printed, and we will not be able to adjust schedules due to students not submitting posters in time.

The OUR will have a partner for printing (TBA). If students meet the deadline for submitting to the partner, the OUR will cover printing. If they miss the deadline, they will need to print posters on their own.

You can view specifics on the Symposium website.

The OUR is running a (virtual) Summer Seminar Series. Any student who wishes to attend is welcome. They can view the topics, days/times, and register on this site.
