The goal of the UNC Charlotte Crime Analytics Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CA-REU) site is to provide an innovative and interdisciplinary study of crime and analytics for a diverse pool of undergraduate students who will advance the need for developing a generation of employees prepared for the inter- and multidisciplinary challenges related to data science and analytics.

This NSF summer program is designed for undergraduate students who want “hands-on” research experience and for those who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees or careers in fields such as Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Crime Analysis, Analytics, and Data Science. The program is targeted to undergraduate students who are rising sophomores and juniors. Ten students will be selected to participate, and students from underrepresented groups, HBCUs, and community colleges are strongly encouraged to apply.

The intellectual focus of the CA-REU is on advancing research related to crime analytics within an interdisciplinary framework. The CA-REU will be modeled around team-based learning pedagogical concepts where students will be selected and assigned to interdisciplinary research teams of faculty.

The CA-REU student participants will be required to fully participate in all aspects and activities of the research experience. They will be expected to contribute in research group meetings, discussions with research and peer mentors, and participate in the enrichment activities and workshops that are intended to supplement the research experience.

Students will be paid a $5,000 stipend for the 10-week period, and will have their housing provided on campus. Students will also visit industry leaders in data technology and the CMPD Crime Analysis lab, and participate in social events.
