The UWM Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) opened in 2008 as a resource for undergraduates seeking on-campus research opportunities and faculty seeking enthusiastic, motivated undergraduate students with whom to collaborate. OUR programs, including the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), the Support for Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) program, the UR@UWM program for incoming students, the Course-Based Research Projects (CBRP), the Overseas Undergraduate Research Awards, the Conference Travel Awards, the Senior Excellence in Research Awards (SERA), the Faculty Mentor of the Year Award, the annual campus-wide UWM Undergraduate Research Symposium, and the Students Exploring Equity at UWM seminar (SEE@UWM), are designed to connect students and faculty in collaborative research in all schools and colleges at UWM.
