In the summer of 2007, The Committee on Undergraduate Research was asked to present to the ASU President's Advisory Council about the state and benefits of Undergraduate Research at Augusta State University. Our message in "Undergraduate Research: Creating a Culture" included the advantages of student engagement for faculty and students as well as some data about the breadth and growth of undergraduate research and scholarship at ASU.
