Faculty/ Staff Volunteers

Help shape the next generation of scholars.


Faculty member discussing research presentation.RCIF would not be possible without faculty, staff, postdocs, and senior graduate students generously donating their time in support of undergraduate research. Additionally, much of the success comes from the feedback provided to students as they seek to improve their projects and presentation skills.

With the virtual format, two unique volunteer opportunities exist. Please find additional information below. UGR is asking those interested and available to complete a short form to help assist with overall planning.

Volunteer Opportunities


With RCIF moving online this year, moderators will fill an important role within the respective presentation sessions. Moderators will serve as the session "host" by introducing the student presenters and 3MT format, assist with timekeeping, and facilitating the Q&A after the presentations particularly if the judges have additional questions.

Evaluators are needed from all disciplines in order to provide our undergraduates with tangible written feedback on their research presentations. Guidelines and rubrics are provided by UGR; therefore, no prior experience is required! The purpose of the evaluations is to assess learning outcomes and not to determine the best presentation overall.
