Overview:The SURE Program is an upcoming 8-10 week no-cost program for undergraduate students engaged in research and creative works. It will provide bi-weekly professional development modules that culminate in the end-of-summer SURE Symposium. Guided by UH faculty and administrators, these modules will prepare students for their academic and professional pursuits. Examples of modules include:
Initial kickoff celebration
How to identify and apply to graduate schools
Community engagement field trip
How to prepare for oral and poster presentations
The program emphasizes not only the importance of advancing academically and professionally, but of connecting to Hawai‘i as a sense of place. It serves as a gathering place for students who otherwise would find themselves interacting little outside of their research settings or creative works spaces. The program provides a space for students to confer with their peers on the challenges, solutions, and rewards they experience when conducting research and creative works.
Who It’s For:
Students from all disciplines who are doing research or creative works, and are mentored by UHM faculty are encouraged to participate.
Students are encouraged to attend the initial kickoff celebration/orientation and the end-of-summer symposium, at a minimum.
