CAS Issues Revised UG Research Standards; Reflects CUR Input

The Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) has released a self-assessment guide and revised standards for undergraduate research programs, including a definition and best practices for undergraduate research that reflect CUR's focus.

The new standards set out expectations for educators, aiming to improve mentoring and more fully integrate undergraduate research across disciplines and programs. The standards also acknowledge the substantial increase of undergraduate research programs at community colleges. More than 20 CUR members reviewed and vetted the standards over the past two years.
