The Educational Advancement Program’s Summer 2014 Research Institute, an undergraduate preparation for graduate school, began in May and ended last week. Fifteen first-generation, low-income, or underrepresented undergraduates engaged in examining a research topic, gaining skills and knowledge about preparing a literature review, examining research methods, and practicing technical writing while under the guidance of a UT faculty mentor.
The Student Success Center and the Educational Advancement Program will hold a joint open house from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday at their new locations on the third floor of Greve Hall. At the same time, Career Services—located in nearby Dunford Hall—will hold its sixth annual cookout, offering hotdogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers.
