Undergraduate Research Program

Countdown to the 19th Annual UW System Symposium

About the Undergraduate Research Program

The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) is a high impact practice that gives students the opportunity to apply their knowledge outside of the classroom and dive deeper into their field of interest. URP offers a variety of programs aimed to connect our students with faculty mentors and provide them with enriching research opportunities. This can be in the form of working alongside a mentor as a student researcher, or creating independent, student-led project with a mentor's help.
