All of the UROC programs are flexible and provide scholarly opportunities for students in all majors and across all academic levels. Opportunities include on campus research with a faculty or staff member, partnerships with off-campus mentors in the community, or international seminars, exchanges and field-based experiences during the academic year and beyond. 

The projects can extend throughout a student’s undergraduate career leading to graduate school or future employment. The opportunities vary from laboratory research in a large group to scholarly activity with a mentor to working at an off-campus organization. Students may assist with faculty research outside of the Immersive Scholars program, Emerging Scholars, or BEST.
