At the Joint Mathematics Meetings this past January 2009, the MAA CUPM Subcommittee on Research by Undergraduates sponsored a panel discussion on "Starting and Maintaining an Academic Year Undergraduate Research Program." CUPM Committee members Michael Dorff and Zsuzsanna Szaniszlo organized the panel, which included five professors: Rebecca Garcia, Rick Gillman, Daniel Schaal, and the co-editors of this column Sarah Spence Adams and Darren Narayan. This column will serve to review some of the advice and suggestions that were discussed during the session.
