The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) connects first- and second-year students who are seeking research experiences with faculty-led research projects. The program began in 2000 and focuses on lower-division students because it can be a particular challenge for these students to take the first steps to connect to faculty researchers, but students who start this endeavor early often have the best outcomes.  Students register for a small 1-credit seminar and work with Office of Undergraduate Research Deputy Director Kyla Esguerra to learn about the culture of university research while also taking the necessary steps to make the most of a research experience.
