The UTSA P20 Pathways to Educational Research Training Program is designed to mentor undergraduate juniors beginning in their junior year to conduct collaborative Educational Science research that prepares them for graduate study. The training program is primarily housed within the UTSA Department of Interdisciplinary Teaching and includes faculty and students from across disciplines who are conducting Educational Science research. The founded training program aims to:

1. Provide undergraduate juniors with experiences in        conducting Educational Science research with a focus on P-20 Pipeline Issues while preparing participants for doctoral study, and
