Leadership Committee

The UROP Leadership Committee is comprised of University of Michigan alumni interested in supporting UROP to work strategically to raise funds for student travel to conferences, summer fellowships, faculty mentor awards, and small research grants for student initiated projects. The members come to campus from all over the country and are leaders in business, communications (radio and television), the pharmaceutical industry, and law. They also will work with UROP to create internships, provide mentorship, and link our program to other alumni around the country.
