Characteristics of Excellence in Undergraduate Research (COEUR)

An instrument to assist institutions to self-asses the maturity of their undergraduate research programs. The instrument aspires to present the best practices in undergraduate research. It can be used as a guide for institutions that are striving to enhance the learning experiences of students through research program. It can also be used as a beacon for institutions that are in the beginning stages of developing and undergraduate research program.

Affinity Research Group Model
Funding: NSF DUE-0443061, DUE-092033, and CNS-050592
Contact: Ann Gates

A set of practices built on a cooperative team framework to support the creation and maintenance of dynamic and inclusive groups. ARG extends the number of students involved in research through inclusion of those who have the capability, but who have not considered research. ARG students become productive members of research teams through the deliberate and intentional development of the technical, team, and professional skills and knowledge required for cooperative work.

A Handbook of Effective Practices for Promoting Diversity and Involving Undergraduates in Research Groups
Document
Related Effort: Affinity Research Group Model

The ARG handbook can be used as a step-by-step guide for newly formed research groups or as a reference manual for more established ones. Because groups differ in purpose and personality, the structure and activities presented can be adapted as needed to accommodate various environments, research areas, and audiences.
