Minority Opportunity for Research Experience

The Office of Diversity Programming at Indiana University Northwest invites minority students to learn more about research opportunities at an information session planned for 11 a.m., Wednesday, February 1 in Hawthorn Hall, room 107.

Students are encouraged to bring their lunches and join the informal discussion presented by students conducting research at IU's School of Medicine. At the session, students will also learn about the Minority Opportunity Research Experience (MORE) program and other opportunities to engage in research on campus.

In collaboration with Academic Affairs and the Student Retention Program, the Office of Diversity Programming established MORE in order to engage underrepresented minority students in research endeavors and to encourage student participation in faculty research and other creative projects. MORE is a research initiative which supports students from all disciplines with an interest in working with faculty as a research assistant. 

MORE empowers students from underrepresented and low-income populations to participate in research as early as possible in their academic careers, as research skills are often preferred prior to employment in many fields.

MORE is currently accepting applications for participation in research projects on campus. Forms must be submitted no later than 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 10. A letter of recommendation from a faculty member must accompany the application.

Information about the MORE program, as well as guidelines and electronic applications, can be found at http://www.iun.edu/diversity/student-involvement/index.htm.
