The University of Michigan School of Information Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program provides a diverse group of promising students with a short-term research experience to foster their intellectual growth as scientists, and to provide an important building block for a rewarding long-term career in the fields of social sciences and information technology unified by the incentive-centered design approach.
In this intense ten-week program, each student is assigned to a research group matching his or her intellectual interests. In this group, the student takes part in every aspect of the group's scientific work and social activities, and pursues a small research project under the supervision of experienced faculty and doctoral student mentors from the STIET programs. The REU program supplements experiences in the research group with a broad range of educational and social activities that forge the participating students into a community of scholars.
