San Francisco State University (SFSU), an urban university serving a highly diverse student population. We have run an REU site for 8 years with a focus in the areas of ecological and evolutionary developmental biology for undergraduate students, particularly underrepresented minorities (URMs). Our program engages 8-10 students in a 10-week research-intensive summer experience. Bringing together an exceptionally diverse team of faculty researchers with active extramurally-funded research labs--many of which are located at SFSU's marine station, the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies (RTC) on San Francisco Bay. The program includes an intensive introductory week of lab/lecture/field methods course, an 8-week professional development seminar, original research projects designed and conducted by students in the laboratories of their faculty research mentors, a variety of networking activities, and a campus-wide research conference at which students present their research projects to the broader community.
