Undergraduate Research Fellows Make Connections

Research helps students get hands-on experience in their field and provides them with confidence to move forward into the professional world. Salisbury University’s Undergraduate Research Fellows serve as student ambassadors and role models, connecting their fellow undergraduates to faculty mentors who can help them explore their interests in depth.
