Many citizen-science programs - including the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project and the Great Sunflower Project - are managed by university researchers, and this connection has facilitated the involvement of undergraduate students in project design, data collection and management, and independent research. Here, we describe the benefits of undergraduate involvement, and encourage citizen-science coordinators and college faculty to increase the use of citizen science and citizen-science data in undergraduate training.
