Residence Life – Academic Support Initiatives is pleased to house the research team because of the many benefits the experience will offer students. Students who participate in an undergraduate research experience show greater gains in disciplinary knowledge, information literacy, communication skills, and a clarification of career paths (Lopato 2010). Studies by the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) at the University of Michigan and Nagda et al. (1998) found increased student success, retention, and graduation rates related to student researchers.
