On Monday (October 17), Padhu Seshaiyer (Math, and Students as Scholars contributor) and I presented a talk at a meeting in Arlington. The meeting was sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research and the National Science Foundation, and meant to showcase the Research Experiences for Undergraduates program. We were invited to talk about the Students as Scholars program, specifically with emphasis on supporting and involving faculty in the program. We know, of course, that without faculty involvement and dedication, there are no opportunities to support undergraduate scholarship, and our goal has to been to create a faculty-supportive culture that recognizes the value and time of our faculty. The presentation is available in pdf and was called "Transforming a Campus Culture by Creating a Faculty-Supportive Environment for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities."
