Welcome to our student-led organization and DeCal, Underrepresented Researchers of Color (UROC) – Demystifying the Research Process: Decolonizing Methods in Academic Research! We seek to build a community of researchers of color. As research is an extremely isolating and exclusive process at this institution, we seek to dismantle this. Furthermore, students of color perform low rates of research at this research institution, alongside research programs on campus having low representation and acceptance rates of students of color. We exist to bridge this gap.

UROC events/workshops are open to the public (on or off campus) and held regularly, in order to be as accessible to a wider range of an audience as possible. Part of how we’re cultivating this community is to provide students with necessary tools and resources – such as mentorship, panels/mixers, research methodology and decolonizing research workshops – for students to envision research that is relevant to their identities and communities with which they engage.
