Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program

Welcome to the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP)! We believe that conducting research and creative activities should be an integral component of the education undergraduates receive at CSULB, regardless of their career choice.

Through the program, first and second-year students serve as research assistants, supporting faculty in their ongoing research, scholarly, and creative activity.

We invite you to learn more about the program and contact us if you have any questions.




UROP's Faculty Director, Dr. Angela Locks has received the Academic Affairs Award for Outstanding Faculty Mentor for Student Engagement in Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity. Peer Advisor, Amberle Mckee has received the Outstanding Undergraduate Research Student Award.
