We are glad that you are interested in learning more about mentoring, effective mentoring skills, and undergraduate student research. Please let us know if you think we should be covering a specific skill set more in-depth or from a different perspective. The UROP office is here to serve as a primary resource for undergraduate research mentors desiring to become an effective mentor.

Mentors play an important role in the undergraduate research process by assisting students in making the transition from classroom learning to real world applications. It can also be very valuable for researchers to contribute to students’ development and their confidence to pursue a successful career. In addition, close interaction between students, faculty, and other research personnel exposes students to research processes, methodologies, and to higher levels of learning.

UROP maintains a large list of undergraduate research and mentoring resources. Additionally, UROP also maintains a library of select books and journals that are relevant to a large segment of the Georgia Tech community. These can be checked out and are noted in the descriptions. Please check back often for additions to our library.
