Preparing for the LANS with Your Mentor(s)

Previously: The mentoring team at your summer research site

Work with your mentor to hit the ground running at LANS

The Leadership Alliance National Symposium (LANS) is the culminating event of the Summer. At LANS, you will join more than 400 other undergraduates to present your summer research. You will also have the opportunity to participate in professional development activities and network with faculty, administrator, and postdocs from across The Leadership Alliance. You can hit the ground running with respect to LANS by engaging the help of your mentoring team on a variety of fronts. First, you will need to receive approval from your summer coordinator and submit your title by July 3. Make sure your research mentor knows that you have this deadline so that you can plan your research accordingly. Postdocs and graduate students at your research sites can be great resources in helping you plan your presentation. And your summer coordinator will have an excellent overview of all things “LANS.” Heed their advice!
