About the URP

Our Vision

The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) works toward ensuring that all UW undergraduates who wish to enrich their education with research obtain such experience.

We are committed to the integration of URP activities and services into the educational experience of undergraduates in a "cradle-to-grave" system of support for undergraduates.

This system would include:

  • Planning with students to include research in their academic program;
  • Working with faculty to develop and publicize new research opportunities;
  • Assisting students in accessing research opportunities;
  • Fostering student understanding of the development of research questions and approaches;
  • Providing instruction on research methodologies, etiquette, and ethics;
  • Creating opportunities for students to make their work public; and,
  • Creating opportunities for students to envision themselves as contributing participants in a community of scholars.
