Undergraduate Research Programs

The Minority Health Disparities Initiative (MHDI) administers several research programs for undergraduates. Since its inception, MHDI has provided training to over 100 undergraduate and graduate students. These programs enable students to work directly with MHDI faculty affiliates and our leadership team on issues surrounding health disparities. MHDI students utilize and develop a wide combination of skills to understand and disseminate information to the UNL community and beyond.

Many of our past and present scholars are now transitioning to graduate and Ph.D. students, post-doctoral students, and full-time faculty positions using the training they received at UNL to generate new and enhanced programs, policies, and practices to reduce and eliminate health disparities. Undergraduates from our program will be able to serve as research assistants on exciting research projects related to minority health with staff, faculty, and researchers at the cutting edge of this burgeoning field.
