For Faculty

Faculty Participation

UROC success would not be possible without the key participation of professors, who serve as faculty mentors to undergraduate students.  Professors are the best resource to introduce students to their academic discipline and guide them through the research process. 

Faculty also help guide the academic integrity and strategic focus of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Center.  A team of ten faculty experts across three academic schools, serve as the UROC Advisory Board.
