Event Description: 

The affinity research group model is a set of practices built on a cooperative team framework to support the creation and maintenance of dynamic and inclusive research groups in which members learn and apply the knowledge and skills required for research and cooperative work.  The model creates an integrated research environment in which a collective of diverse students and faculty contribute to research efforts. The three core components are: the definition of a group’s core ideology; active fostering of student connectedness; and application of deliberate management practices that reinforce skills development and promote establishment of cooperative teams. Attendees will learn about the model and practice team skills through interactive activities.  The model prepares students for success in research, academe, and the workforce.
