Undergraduate students are involved in a number of curatorial and research projects in the CUIC. Students are employed to help with collection maintenance, curation of specific parts of the collection, and databasing.
Undergraduate students interested in systematics and insect biodiversity are encouraged to pursue independent research under the guidance of CUIC faculty.
Our recent success improving the Cornell University Insect Collection has been possible because of the efforts of talented Cornell undergraduate students. These students represent numerous majors and colleges at Cornell.
