The Heritage Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is designed to help prepare participants to study emergent social-cultural research and resource management issues faced by communities interested in heritage as a key cultural resource in areas such as quality of life programs and policies; education; tourism; historic preservation; youth activities; civic and environmental empowerment; and neighborhood revitalization. It is conducted in collaboration with local community groups and other groups/organizations interested in heritage management and preservation.
Graduate and undergraduate students interested in internship opportunities with the USF Heritage Research Lab or participating in the Summer Heritage Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, including funded opportunities at National Historic Sites outside the Tampa Bay area, should contact Dr. Antoinette Jackson via the Contact Us page.
