Linguistics graduate students Maria Teresa Martinez-Garcia & Zhen Qin selected as Graduate Research Consultants

This fall, 12 Graduate Research Consultants will pair with instructors in a wide variety of fields to challenge undergraduate students to further develop their research skills through classroom-based projects.

The Graduate Research Consultant (GRC) program, administered by the University of Kansas Center for Undergraduate Research, is one of many initiatives at KU to expand experiential learning opportunities to a larger number of students. The GRC program provides financial support ($500) to a graduate student who works with a particular course to help design a research or creative project, mentor students and evaluate student learning. GRCs are expected to devote 30 hours over the course of the semester to facilitate the students’ projects. The goal of the program is to enable the instructor to require more demanding research and creative projects while providing more support for the students.

“The GRC program is one way we can introduce undergraduate research in the classroom,” said John Augusto, director of the Center for Undergraduate Research. “The instructors and GRCs have outlined innovative projects for their classes that aim to challenge their students and involve them in the type of intellectual inquiry that is at the core of a research university.”

Instructors and GRCs jointly applied for the awards in July, detailing the types of research activities they wanted to pursue in their classes and the learning outcomes they hoped to achieve through these projects.
