UMore Park: University of Minnesota Outreach, Research and Education Park

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program

UMore Park presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity for multidisciplinary and disciplinary research, shorter-term projects, capstone projects and class projects that engage groups of students. Through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), undergraduate students can participate in research activities on a large University project that is unique in the nation. The interests and expertise of students and faculty from across the University are relevant to innovation at UMore Park and can support and advance planning and development activities. The practical, hands-on research projects can be applied to real, complex issues of the day. The Office for UMore Park Academic Initiatives has a goal to create opportunities for faculty and students via UMore Park planning and development through a variety of mechanisms. Information on the mechanisms envisioned is covered in the November 2009 report, Integrating Academic Mission into Planning and Development of the UMore Park Property.
