Why encourage and support undergraduate research and Inquiry?

Benefits for Faculty participating in Undergraduate Research and Inquiry

Students are not the only beneficiaries of involvement in undergraduate research and inquiry; benefits to faculty have also been observed.  These include enhanced mentoring and teaching, enhanced satisfaction with their career and personal development, achieved scholarly and research outcomes (e.g. presentations and publications), and integrated teaching and scholarship.  Faculty who were themselves engage in similar activities as undergraduates identify the experience as being transformational for their careers.
