Joseph L. Murray is Associate Professor of Education and the Director of the College Student Personnel Program at Bucknell University, Pennsylvania, USA.


"Murray's cool passion for engaging undergraduates in systematic inquiry enlivens this grand tour about how to best organize such experiences to maximize benefits to both students and institutions. For those looking for a comprehensive overview of why undergraduate research matters, this is it."
-George D. Kuh, Chancellor's Professor of Higher Education Emeritus, Indiana University, USA

"This book powerfully demonstrates the critical importance of the high-impact practice of undergraduate research in fostering student engagement, while offering models to ensure equity and inclusion in promoting student success."
-Lynn Pasquerella, President, Association of American Colleges & Universities, USA

"Murray has written a comprehensive, yet thoroughly readable account of the undergraduate research movement. His clear-eyed and reasoned analysis of the movement's history, achievements, and challenges provides a fundamental information resource to many stakeholders involved in operating and studying undergraduate research programs. I would particularly recommend this book to faculty mentors, education researchers, and academic administrators with responsibilities to advance undergraduate research on their campuses."
