Other Opportunities for Research at UM
Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP): The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) creates research partnerships between first and second year students and University of Michigan faculty. All schools and colleges of the University of Michigan are active participants in UROP, thereby providing a wealth of research topics from which a student can choose. Begun in 1989 with 14 student/faculty partnerships the program continues to grow, offering more first and second year students the opportunity to be part of an exciting research community. Today, approximately 900 students and over 600 faculty researchers are engaged in research partnerships.
Michigan Undergraduate Research Forum: We are a student-run, non-technical research journal. Our mission is to build connections between undergraduate, graduate students, and the public, as well as among the different academic disciplines, through the publication of non-technical articles in all fields of research. Our goal is to tap student creativity and effort in all academic disciplines through a peer-edited, faculty-reviewed electronic and print publication. We hope to inspire interest in research in the student body, faculty, and the campus community.
Institute for Social Research: The scientific mission of the Institute for Social Research (ISR) includes the planning and conduct of high quality social science research, the dissemination of findings from this research, and the training of future generations of social scientists. We recognize that a source of strength is our institutional and organizational diversity and that this diversity is intimately linked to the very nature and quality of our scientific and training endeavors. Our goal is to foster an environment that enables and encourages all members of a diverse set of scientists, staff, and students to contribute their full potential to help achieve excellence in our research, public service, and training missions.
