Mentorships for Undergraduate Research
in Agriculture, Letters, and Science
MURALS has played an important role in the careers of many students in the years since its inception. The research experience, the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor, and the chance to develop a project that students might carry with them into their graduate studies are among the invaluable rewards of participation in this program. I know these things from personal experience because although today I serve as Faculty Director, I was once a MURALS student participant. As an undergraduate researcher, I began work on the project that ultimately became my doctoral dissertation. Later, I was able to use my dissertation as the basis for my first book, which was published by a major university press. My past participation as a student in MURALS continues to impact my life and career today as a professor at the University of California, Davis. I encourage you to help us continue the legacy of this very worthwhile program through your own participation as a student, a faculty mentor, or as a valued supporter.
