The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Council (UROC) is UROP’s faculty advisory board that consists of full-time UHM faculty from a wide range of disciplines across campus. UROC members are responsible for the following:

  1. Facilitate and promote opportunities for undergraduate students across all disciplines at UHM to engage in collaborative, faculty-mentored research and creative work, particularly in their academic unit
  2. Participate in the review of student funding applications, including Project and Presentation funding applications
  3. Provide discipline-specific knowledge to develop policy and strategic direction for the UROP to better serve the needs of students in their discipline and the broader UHM campus

UROP is deeply grateful to the service that UROC members provide to the undergraduate research and creative work community at UHM!
