Undergraduate Research - New CHS Course and Improved Contract

Undergraduate research for the college is now using course mechanism HHS 455: Research In the Health Sciences (CH 1-6). We are no longer enrolling students in HSE-595. Please remember to encourage those needing credit hours outside of their majors to register for HHS 455. Additionally, students are inquiring about Fall semester opportunities. Think outside the box and contact if you have an opportunity to post online. Finally, we consolidated the UGR contracts into ONE form for simplicity! (The HHS-455 paperwork includes the same form but is also a syllabus). To access the form(s), click here.
