“The room is alive with people—undergrads, grad students, professors, lab managers—all flinging ideas back and forth because we know that each word makes a difference.”

—Kelly Kendro, BA ’19, Research Assistant, University of Michigan Psycholinguistics Lab

Undergraduate student collaborators are essential members of the research teams on which they participate. They contribute their knowledge, skills, and insights; their hands-on experience grows by working with graduate students and faculty members on team-based projects.

Due to their busy schedules and multiple commitments—plus their tendency to graduate and move on to careers, additional academic degrees, and adventures—undergraduate students come and go on Collaboratory teams. But they definitely make their mark! Click on highlighted names below to read some of the Collaboratory Stories that our undergraduates have shared.
