The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Center (UROC) was established in spring 2014, with a mission to encourage and facilitate faculty-mentored undergraduate research projects and creative activities across all academic disciplines. Regardless of major or future career choice, involvement in such activities provide skills in understanding and applying research methods or creative principles and enhance students’ abilities in critical analysis, problem solving, and communication.
UROC offers a wide variety of services to prepare students to engage in research, including paid research training and graduate preparation, access to research opportunities/listings through the UROC Research Portal, STEM diversity and leadership seminars, and an annual summer undergraduate research symposium. Our UROC Scholars community of high achieving students provides academic mentorship, leadership and professional training and opportunities for students to travel across the nation and present their research.
