Curating Your Undergraduate Collaborations

There are various ways to use Faculty PRO to curate your undergraduate mentoring activities and research collaborations. Doing so will help your unit/department heads track your department's participation in undergraduate research and help identify strengths and opportunities for undergraduate research University-wide. If you have any questions about using PRO to flag your activities, please contact the Faculty PRO Team in Analytics and Institutional Research.
 

STUDENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS

The Student Accomplishments (Current and Former) screen allows you to record your students' achievements. Be sure to set the Student Level field to "Undergraduate" and to indicate whether this is a current or former student.


 

MENTORING AND TEACHING

The Mentoring and Advising screen allows you to record and detail any significant undergraduate research mentoring you have done with undergraduate students. Be sure to set the Student Level field to "Undergraduate". You can also specifically denote whether you interacted with the Center for Undergraduate Research as part of your mentorship by selecting the checkbox at the bottom of the screen labeled "Did you interact with the Center for Undergraduate Research on this activity?"


 

The Directed Student Learning screen captures student exams you have chaired or participated in. The Exam Type field includes an option for "Undergraduate Thesis" - use this to record any theses or honors theses you supervised or collaborated on.

You can flag any research-intensive courses you've taught on the Courses Taught screen using the checkbox labeled "Is this a Research-Intensive Course for undergraduates?" at the top of the screen.
