Meet with a Peer Research Ambassador

OUR Peer Research Ambassadors are UConn undergraduates who have engaged in research and creative activity during their undergraduate careers and want to help other students get involved.

Peer Research Ambassadors can share their advice, help you navigate the process of getting involved in undergraduate research, and connect you with OUR programs and resources during group drop-in hours and individual 15-minute advising appointments.
