CAA Research Lab

Students engaged in a lab presentation
In early 2011, the Center for Access and Attainment (CAA) created the CAA Research Lab, a project intended to introduce first-year students to academic research methods and practice, in a collaborative effort — along with the TRiO SSS, McNair Scholars, and Arnold Mitchem Fellows — to prepare students for graduate study and faculty careers.

The CAA Research Lab activities are partially funded by the Arnold L. Mitchem Fellows Program, which provides a select group of first-year freshmen the opportunity to earn a research internship by contributing to a CAA research project while gaining career and job development skills.
