Potential Research Mentors
Sometimes we’re contacted by students who are looking for a research mentor. We’ve started this list as a helpful resource—it’s by no means exhaustive. It will be updated as new information is collected. Mentors are not required to be from this short list.
Note: UConn’s Minor Protection Program requires that mentors complete a background check prior to mentoring.
Potential research topic areas: environmental science, ecology, natural resources, conservation
