Getting Started in Undergraduate Research (GSIR) is a semester-long individualized program to assist Honors students in entering and participating in undergraduate research with a faculty mentor. It begins with a required seminar at the start of fall semester, and each student is subsequently directed through a series of assignments and activities. The goal at semester's end is for each student participant to have identified a faculty research mentor in the major, and to be planning scholarly activity with that mentor for the following semester.
GSIR is required of upperclass HPEO participants who are not engaged in any of the other Unit 2 options for scholarly activity. GSIR comprises the Unit 2 activity for the semester in which it is done.
