The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) at Michigan
The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) creates research partnerships between undergraduate students and University of Michigan researchers. All schools and colleges are active participants in UROP, which provides a wealth of interesting research topics for program participants. UROP started with 14 student/faculty partnerships in 1988, and has expanded to include more than 1300 students and 800 faculty researchers.
The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program’s annual Spring Symposium is the culminating event for all students who participated in UROP for the 2014-2015 academic year. This event celebrates the partnerships created between students and research sponsors, and serves as a conference where students can present their research project and learn about the research fellow UROP students have worked on.
CRECH’s UROP student, Desiree Sanii, presented a poster entitled, “An Analysis of Policy Regarding Non-Resident Fathers,” at the April 22, 2015 Symposium. Click here to view her poster.
