Aristotle and Plato to Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis H. Sullivan,
students and their mentors have long been collaborating to produce works of
scholarly merit. The
Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), established at the
CU Denver in 1994, enhances undergraduate education
by funding students engaged in scholarly research, creative, and
entrepreneurial activities. Students work in collaboration with faculty at the Downtown
Denver Campus and Anschutz Medical Campus. UROP projects can be designed around the activities of a faculty
mentor or designed independently by a student, or team of students, and
endorsed by a faculty mentor.
More UROP Information is available here.
