题目:An Undergraduate Research Mentoring Model for Non-Research Minority Serving Institutions

内容简介:We demonstrates an effective mentoring model utilized by the Center for Undergraduate Research (CUR) at Albany State University (ASU). The model includes building mentor-mentee relationships and implementing an evaluation process. The principles of our model are consistent with the ones that are in existing literature in the field of developmental relationships; however, the model has been tailored to fit our non-research minority serving institution. The model has been implemented and tested in the CUR over the past three years.The effectiveness of the model is supported by the results of data analysis conducted from 2012 to 2014. According to the data, students who participated in the undergraduate research program, GPA scores increased by 73% compared to the non-undergraduate research participants whose GPA scores increased only 58%.The above data is consistent with the study conducted by Finley & McNair (2013), concluding that minority students who participate in such mentor-mentee (faculty-student) activities show greater improvements in retention and GPA scores.
