SURE is a student organization that cultivates undergraduate student-faculty and undergraduate student-graduate student relationships with the specific goal of exposing and fostering undergraduate student access to economic research on the CMU campus. SURE’s mission is to provide opportunities for undergraduates to be presented with faculty and graduate student research, match on campus research opportunities with undergraduate students, and provide a forum for undergraduates to discuss their own research. So that undergraduate students are better equipped to participate in research, SURE also offers meta-curricular workshops whose aim is develop undergraduate students’ knowledge of programming languages, database structures, and enhance students’ graphic, visual, and oral presentation skills.
Meetings are open to the entire campus community and take place at 4:30 p.m. in Tepper 132 unless otherwise noted.
