Research Accelerator Mentor Program

Research Accelerator Mentors is a course for students to develop and refine leadership skills in a research setting through a series of reflective activities and engagement in practical leadership experience. Mentors will provide support and guidance to groups of first-year students in HONR 19900. Successful mentors will demonstrate supportive, collaborative leadership and foster positive group dynamics through the duration of a research project. They also will encourage their mentees to succeed at Purdue and offer further insights into research opportunities across and outside of campus.
