The purpose of the UROP Ambassadors is to establish
a self-propagating culture of undergraduate research in ALL disciplines
through faculty and peer-mentorship. Ambassadors seek to strengthen
the UCI research community by motivating, assisting, and training
undergraduates to be involved in various types of research or creative
projects, thereby enhancing the undergraduate experience as well
as shaping future goals and aspirations.
In addition, UROP Ambassadors help to create a
networking environment where undergraduate research and creative
opportunities are received and disseminated to aid students in pursuing
the research opportunities available to them. They foster a community
of designated student mentors, who use research-related activities
as a channel to equip other students with valuable skills and qualities
in preparation for post-undergraduate endeavors.
