RESEARCH DURING REMOTE LEARNING

Undergraduate student researchers (USRs) are eligible to be approved on Research Operational Plans (ROPs) under the following conditions:

  • No more than four USRs allowed to work in-person in a lab under an ROP
  • Receive a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to their first day in the research lab
  • Participate in twice weekly COVID-19 testing until further notice
  • Complete the symptom monitoring survey each day prior to coming to campus and forward the clearance certificate to the PI or other designated representative

We encourage students and faculty to develop a fair plan to continue undergraduate research projects until all on-campus projects can resume.  For your assistance, the Undergraduate Research Centers have put together suggestions and resources for how faculty-mentored student research may be conducted off campus during the spring quarter.
