Phi Omicron Activities

Phi Omicron Faculty Adviser: Gregory DeKrey, gregory.dekrey@unco.edu


Support for undergraduate research is one of the major missions of the Tribeta organization.  This mission is achieved through two processes:

  1. Funding for research.  If you need funds to support your research activities and you are a Tribeta Regular member, you can apply for a grant from the national Tribeta office.  The application deadline is in September of each year.  For more information, please visit the national Tribeta web site or talk to the Phi Omicron Faculty Adviser. 
  2. Providing venues for presenting research findings.  One of the pillars of the modern scientific process is dissemination of research findings.  One place to do this is at a Tribeta regional meeting.  Any student, not just Tribeta members, can present at a Tribeta regional conferences.  These conferences are held in the spring of each year.  For more information, please talk to the Phi Omicron Faculty Adviser.
