Undergraduate Research Opportunity program actively recruits undergraduate students to participate in research that is happening across campus. The program enhances research opportunities and research-based education, and enriches undergraduate learning experiences for UNM undergraduate students. The students are encouraged to present their research in the scholarly community including the annual conference hosted by UG Research Opportunity program. The program also partners with other offices to offer workshops on research and preparing for graduate school.
Through experiencing the processes of scholarly discovery and dissemination of their results, students become fully engaged members of the community. Students will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills through research learning provided by the program. Our mission is to support and increase the retention in all disciplines by enhancing the visibility, prestige, and material support for participation in undergraduate research and creative activities, both for students and faculty.
