April 2023 Newsletter

With the University's Undergraduate Research Symposium this Thursday and graduation in only a few weeks, it is a great time to reflect on the many ways FRC provides unique training to promote transdisciplinary and translational mindsets and skillsets, the fourth strategy of our strategic plan. FRC has significantly impacted the lives of undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral associates. FRC has sponsored six postdoctoral associates and as you have been reading in our newsletter over the past few months, have gone on to secure faculty positions across the country. Approximately 200 undergraduates from 28 departments and six colleges have participated in our HDFS 494 Advanced Research Methods course.
