ASP 084: Research Poster & Presentation Workshop
Working with a faculty mentor, students formulate specific research questions related to the Latino community; identify research methods to help answer their inquiries; engage in academic and field research focused on their area of study; synthesize findings in research poster and abstract; and, present research at a pre-selected conference.
Costs associated with research posters and conferences participation will be paid for by the LARES program.
I continue to use many of the skills I learned from this ASP course in my professional career.
This class not only helps freshmen, but it also helps all other student get the extra help needed in subjects they are struggling in.
Having the one-on-one help is great because it makes the student comfortable enough to approach professors for help.
Having the opportunity to have a professor like Dr. Mitzi Ramos was a blessing…Dr. Ramos was very understanding and readily available to help.
I am a 1st generation college student who came from an inner-city school that did not prepare me for college. I came in not knowing what to expect or how to even achieve my goals. Having a faculty advisor to guide me throughout my research & also mentor me through my first year of college allowed me to grow as a student & an individual.
Prior to this ASP course, I was not very interested in research mainly because it intimidated me. I felt that only professors could create research. Thanks to my professor’s guidance, research no longer feels that foreign. Thanks to this course, I was actually able to see myself as an academic.
The LARES ASP research course provides its students with the opportunity to develop essential analytical, writing & research skills which they’ll come to use in both their academic & professional careers.
I was able to get accepted into the UPPF program thanks to having done 2 research posters in this ASP course. This really helped my application since my GPA was not the most competitive.
As a graduate student, I have more confidence in my work because I had the right guidance when I learned how to conduct my own research.
I have landed 2 internships which have both required me to do some kind of research. By having this experience under my belt, my supervisors were much more confident in my abilities & repeatedly told me how impressed they were with the fact that I conducted my own research at such an early stage of college.
