Student Research Integration

Unless otherwise listed, Center services are performed by student employees in the Research Support Lab. The Research Support Lab is connected with social work students eager to integrate their education with hands-on experience with research. If you have a research-related opportunity for students (paid or volunteer) we can help you promote it and gather student interest. Please note that this process is to find student volunteers or employees to work on your project and is not requesting work performed by the Research Support Lab student employees. If you are interested in promoting your opportunity, please fill out our Student Research Integration Form and Kendra Wells will contact you about next steps.

For additional tips about finding students to work with you on your projects, please view our Resources for Recruiting Student Researchers info sheet.
