The Office of Social Science Research is seeking a student to work on a research project that explores the benefits students receive when they participate in independent and faculty led research projects. This collection of information is the first step in a larger research project to better understand the relationship of student participation in research to retention.
Participating in this project will help the student develop research skills in preparation for their Capstone projects. The research skills the student is expected to learn include utilizing scholarly databases and other research resources when searching for studies related to the area of interest. In addition, students will assist in the coding of relevant material from the retrieved studies in order to contribute to the development of a database. Finally, students will further develop their critical thinking and analysis skills as they learn to discern studies that are relevant and appropriate for inclusion and which to exclude as not related. Your work may be used to fulfill Honors Activity. If interested, please contact Tracy Sikorski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
