Undergraduate Research Education Series – Letters of Recommendation

Presented by Matt Haber

In this seminar, you will learn about how to approach your faculty mentor about writing you a letter of recommendation. This is an art all its own and many students are not aware that there are professional parameters for this request. This seminar is appropriate at any point in a student’s education.

Student feedback about this session:
"-Great intro to what a letter is, especially for students who haven't seen letters of recommendation. -Good breakdown of how to ask for a letter. - Important insight on the professor's experience writing a letter."
"This information surprised me & made me feel more comfortable about this new realm. Letters of recommendation have been scary and after talking with Professor Haber I feel like I can navigate this process well. I would like this knowledge to be give to freshman!"
"good advice about who to ask, when to ask... and highlights the competitive nature of application process so that students are aware & know how to get strong letters of recommendation."
