    This evidence-based practice paper explores how graduate students and postdocs benefit from serving as mentors to undergraduate research interns. Utilizing three years of qualitative data from 38 mentors, our findings indicate that mentors feel better prepared for future faculty careers as they gain skills in project management, supervision, and communication. This paper reviews common themes across mentor evaluation data and discusses how these factors are contributing to the development of future faculty members prepared to work with diverse student populations. Our preferred method for delivery is a short traditional lecture followed by facilitated discussion of best practices among session attendees.

    Student participation in undergraduate research programs has been linked to improved content knowledge, skills, and confidence. However, few research opportunities exist for community college students. This study explores the positive effects of a summer research program on three diverse cohorts of such students. The Transfer-to-Excellence Research Experiences for Undergraduate program is a hands-on summer research internship for California community college students. The program seeks to inspire students to complete a Bachelor's degree in science or engineering and primarily serves identities underrepresented in those fields. Analysis of mixed methods evaluation data shows that after participating in the program, community college students were better able to find scholarly resources, design ethical scientific experiments, conduct independent research, and analyze data. Additionally, participation in the program enhanced students' science identity and confidence to pursue further education and careers in science and engineering fields.

  6. We offer a perspective on the prospects of ultrafast spintronics and opto-magnetism as a pathway to high-performance, energy-efficient, and non-volatile embedded memory in digital integrated circuit applications. Conventional spintronic devices, such as spin-transfer-torque magnetic-resistive random-access memory (STT-MRAM) and spin–orbit torque MRAM, are promising due to their non-volatility, energy-efficiency, and high endurance. STT-MRAMs are now entering into the commercial market; however, they are limited in write speed to the nanosecond timescale. Improvement in the write speed of spintronic devices can significantly increase their usefulness as viable alternatives to the existing CMOS-based devices. In this article, we discuss recent studies that advance the field of ultrafast spintronics and opto-magnetism. An optimized ferromagnet–ferrimagnet exchange-coupled magnetic stack, which can serve as the free layer of a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ), can be optically switched in as fast as ∼3 ps. Integration of ultrafast magnetic switching of a similar stack into an MTJ device has enabled electrical readout of the switched state using a relatively larger tunneling magnetoresistance ratio. Purely electronic ultrafast spin–orbit torque induced switching of a ferromagnet has been demonstrated using ∼6 ps long charge current pulses. We conclude our Perspective by discussing some of the challenges that remain to be addressed to accelerate ultrafast spintronics technologies toward practical implementation in high-performance digital information processing systems.
