Students and Fellows in College Research Programs

By September 2016, enhance student and fellow involvement in, and funding of, college research programs that includes undergraduate, professional, graduate, resident, and postdoctoral fellows. Define an administrative ‘home’ that provides a structure supporting and promoting undergraduate and Pharm.D. student research (perhaps through expansion of the associate dean for research portfolio).

Accountable: dean, division heads, associate dean for research & graduate studies.
