URS should be viewed as an opportunity for the student to learn from my expertise;
and thus I will sufficiently mentor my Scholar through face-to-face contact providing
my guidance and support.
I will provide clear guidelines to the Scholar regarding my expectations for this
I will provide information about the safety trainings I require to the URS Coordinator.
I will do my part to ensure the research Scholar is able to submit his/her timesheet
on time to the Honors College every two weeks. As a Mentor, I realize I am required
to verify all hours worked by signing the Hours Verification Form for each two-week
pay period. In lab situations a graduate level representative may be appointed. A
timesheet is a legal document and subject to audit. Falsification of hours reported
will result in termination of the Scholar’s position and possible legal action.
I understand that Scholars are required to present a poster or a paper in the Spring
semester. I will provide my Scholar with my expertise and time as he/she prepares
for this event.
I agree to give recognition to my Scholar when possible on publications and presentations.
I will assist the Honors College with publicity of the URS program by providing information
to the URS Coordinator about any publications/presentations resulting from research
done with my Undergraduate Research Scholar.
