Research Council

Early in the academic year, applications will be solicited for representatives from each department or school. The executive board will select from among these applicants the members of the Research Council, which will then nominate a Head of the Research Council, as explained in Article I, Section 3 of these by-laws. The organization will solicit submissions for our publications and maintain the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Database online, as well as guiding interested members toward research in their discipline.
