14305155614_68f7b1effc_hCHARS is a great resource for anyone interested in pursuing a career in a field related to research and/or healthcare. Our meetings and events provide undergraduates with an opportunity to meet and network with other students as well as supplement their academic in-class experiences with volunteer work, pre-professional development and career exploration.

As a member of CHARS, you will have a chance to network with staff, student leaders, and experienced researchers within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences as well as within other parts of the university community. You will also have a chance to talk with medical and graduate students and discuss the application processes and life in professional school. We also provide mentoring and information for those students considering pursuing an Honors in Research degree through CALS.
