The Peer Research Ambassadors (PRAs) are UConn students who have engaged in research and creative activity during their undergraduate careers and want to help other students get involved. PRAs attend OUR workshops and help represent OUR at events such as career fairs and open houses. They also serve as an informal advisory board, sharing feedback with OUR administrators on how to improve outreach efforts and programming.
In addition, Peer Research Ambassadors are available to talk with students and share advice about getting started with and engaging in research, scholarship, and/or creative projects. If you're looking to get involved in these activities, it is extremely valuable to hear directly from other students about their experiences. Meet with a Peer Research Ambassador by scheduling a one-on-one advising conversation.
