In this workshop sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Program and the Center for Research on Global Engagement, we invite you to discuss the integration of mentorship, undergraduate research, and global engagement. By participating in faculty-mentored undergraduate research in global (domestic and international) contexts, students may integrate global learning, cultural humility, problem-solving, and ethical engagement with community partners while also developing foundational research knowledge and skills. Based on a recently published study, presenters will describe the rich cultural contexts in which the research occurs; elucidate the salient mentoring practices utilized to support students’ personal and intellectual development; discuss constellations of mentors spanning different institutions, communities, and countries; and identify key institutional supports within an ecological framework. Presenters will highlight pedagogies and practices that may be applied to a variety of research programs and invite participants to apply them to their own contexts.
