Peer Research Consultant

The mission of the Peer Research Consultant program (PRC) is to contribute to building a community of scholars that foster innovation and develop a sense of purpose and achievement. PRC are upper division undergraduate students or graduate students who assist instructors with turning course assignments into research projects. The PRC supports students as they implement, design, analyze, and disseminate the results of their projects. Specifically, the PRC assists with framing questions appropriate for the discipline, implementing and conducting class investigations, and reporting findings in writing and orally to the class and a broader audience. This program targets all courses.
