The Graduate College Rebel Research and Mentorship Program (RAMP) is designed to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable research/scholarly/creative skills and mentorship skills, respectively. Undergraduate students work closely with doctoral or MFA graduate student mentors on a research/creative/scholarly project. This allows the undergraduate student firsthand experience with conducting research as well as personal and academic support on an individualized level. Students will also have the opportunity to attend workshops that are specifically designed to increase their knowledge of graduate education and professional development. This program enables the student to develop skills critical to professional career goals and/ or graduate school. By having undergraduate students and graduate students work together with faculty member oversight, this program will more broadly help to foster a strong campus-wide scholarly community. The Rebel Research and Mentorship Program is co-sponsored by the Graduate College and the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.
