Introduction to UROC: Getting Started in Research for Minority Students

Workshop | September 6 | 5:30-6:30 p.m. | 9 Durant Hall


Ife Ochukwu, UROC (Under-represented Researchers of Color)

Office of Undergraduate Research


Welcome to our student-led organization, Underrepresented Researchers of Color (UROC)! We serve as a pipeline to increase representation of marginalized students in research programs and grad schools, and 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. In other words, marginalized students receive little to no mentorship and access to resources to conduct their research/projects. We exist to bridge this gap.
