Penn State Brandywine faculty co-author book chapter

June 15, 2009

Two Penn State Brandywine faculty members shared their expertise on undergraduate research in a recently published book on the topic. Ivan Esparragoza, associate professor of engineering, and Laura Guertin, associate professor of earth sciences, co-authored the chapter "Building Skills, Connections, and a Culture of Research with Freshman and Sophomore Students" in the new book titled "Broadening Participation in Undergraduate Research: Fostering Excellence and Enhancing the Impact," published by the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).

Mary Boyd, dean of arts and sciences, University of San Diego, and co-editor of the new book said, “Broadening participation in undergraduate research is about maximizing potential--the potential of students, research, and institutions--and expanding our understanding of the world. By fostering excellence, high-quality programs across the country are enhancing the lives of students, the direction of their scholarship, and its impact on their disciplines and institutions.”
