Skill-Building Workshops

The skill-building workshops offered through UROP are required or recommended by UROP mentors as skills that are necessary to be successful as a part of their research project. The workshops are agreed upon between the mentor and mentee when completing their mentor/mentee agreement. Students are encouraged and welcome to attend workshops that are recommended by their mentor or that they are interested in.

Time spent completing skill-building workshops can be included in the hours that the student reports on their timesheet.
