2008 REU Conference
Research Experiences for Undergraduates
June 11-13, 2008
American Center for Physics

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program has been funding undergraduate research site programs for over 20 years.
Workshop participants discussed how to:
- Improve their undergraduate research programs
- Assess the impact of their programs on the undergraduates
- Recruit a diverse group of participants.
The workshop allowed participants to set an agenda for further study of the impact of the physics NSF-REU site program on undergraduate physics education. The broader undergraduate research community can benefit from the dissemination of presentation resources used at the workshop and resources relevant to undergraduate research programs that were identified at the workshop. In addition, a summary of the workshop discussions will be written and made available at this website.
