Undergraduate Research Experience

The URE Steering Group hosted “Night at the (Sternberg) Museum” on Wednesday, September 17, 2014.  Twenty-Four Administrators, New Faculty and Staff attended the event, where they heard from former URE grant recipients, the fall 2014 Heinrichs Research Mentor Award recipient (Dr. Brian Maricle), and other campus researchers.  Everyone enjoyed a spaghetti dinner provided by the URE Steering Group, as well as three different tour options throughout the Sternberg collections and exhibits.
