Attend 'Think Like a Researcher' workshops in September

University Libraries, in partnership with the Office of Undergraduate Research, is offering Think Like a Researcher workshops to help undergraduate students become comfortable with the research skills and tools needed to participate in faculty-sponsored research.
Interested in doing research? Level up!

University of Minnesota undergraduate students have numerous opportunities to engage in real research and creative projects including working in a scientific lab, conducting survey research, and researching historical documents. These all require students to take their skills to the next level.

Think Like a Researcher workshops are designed to help undergraduate students become comfortable with the research skills and tools needed to participate in a variety of exciting research and creative opportunities, including the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) and more.
