REU design: broadening participation and promoting success

Rebecca Garcia and Cindy Wyels

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 3, 315–326
Abstract

This article summarizes the authors’ presentations on the panel “Working with Students from Underrepresented Groups” as part of the MAA’s Trends in Undergraduate Research in Mathematics Conference held in Chicago, in October 2012. We highlight effective aspects of our own successful programs that emphasize working with students from underrepresented groups. We discuss specific issues of program design that one might beneficially consider when planning to work with students from underrepresented groups and provide examples of ways in which the authors have addressed these concerns.
