DIS Contributes Chapter to Book on Undergraduate Research Abroad

Academic Director, Helle Rytkønen and Associate Academic Director, Tina Mangieri have been published in the edited volume Undergraduate Research Abroad: Approaches, Models, and Challenges.

Mangieri and Rytkønen were invited to submit a chapter detailing the process of creating and growing a rigorous undergraduate research program in study abroad, based on the focus on both student opportunities and direct faculty support in DIS.

Since 2018, Research at DIS has funded the research programs of 25 teaching faculty and provided 145 students with mentored research experiences (resulting in several peer-reviewed publications). It has expanded the DIS research network to nearly 15 external research labs for student placements in Copenhagen and Stockholm, and grown the DIS curriculum to include a focus on 3 and 6-credit mentored research assistantships, independent research projects, and summer research.

DIS is continuously striving to expand research opportunities with our partners, to help campuses meet their own goals to provide significant undergraduate research experience for their students through international study.
