Become a Research Mentor

Research Mentors are integral to the success of the UROP Program!

Welcome to UROP

Thank you for your interest in working with UROP students! Our program would not be possible without your participation. UROP Research Mentors provide undergraduate student researchers an opportunity to engage in research activities that help students learn about the pursuit of knowledge within an academic discipline and beyond. This early exposure to research fosters a valuable academic experience for students. Through this collaboration, students gain research skills and mentorship that lead to academic retention, a more positive undergraduate experience and paths to graduate and professional schools. In addition, Research Mentors gain significant contributions and creative insights to their research work through this unique teaching opportunity.
