Zoom into Research and Creative Work provides opportunities for students to meet faculty and learn about the exciting work they do outside the classroom.
UROP hosts light-hearted interviews with faculty from a wide range of departments at the beginning of each event. Student attendees then meet with faculty in Zoom breakout rooms.
Though students may connect with a potential project mentor, the purpose of the event is to help students see themselves as participants in the academic and creative life of the university—and to explore a range of potential identities.
Students who participate are likely to be surprised by the less direct and more failure-marked stories of the successful faculty behind the impressive headlines—and find more in common.
