This content is covered in the "Getting Started" workshop.  See also the Finding and Working with Faculty Mentors page for additional guidance.

Many undergraduates find the process of securing a faculty sponsor for their research project somewhat daunting. This workshop will show you how to leverage the skills and knowledge you already possess to secure a faculty mentor. We will cover how to identify potential faculty sponsors on campus as well as how to prepare for the first meeting so that you make a great first impression. 

The workshop will be especially useful for undergraduates, but is open to all UC-Berkeley students (undergraduate, graduate, and visiting scholars) regardless of academic discipline.  It is generally offered once every two weeks from August to March, and takes place in 1229 Dwinelle Hall. Please check the research calendar for current times, dates, and locations.
