Getting Started

What is URP?

  • The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) is an umbrella for student research at UD. We run broad-based programs of our own through the academic year and in the summers and we also coordinate with many other offices, departments, and academic units that have more specific research programs related to particular academic disciplines.
  • Undergraduate research is an integral part of UD’s academic culture; if you are interested in getting involved, we are often your best first stop for learning about research opportunities and how to find them.
  • We can provide you with general information as well as guidance on how to identify and approach a faculty mentor with whom you might like to work.  For more information about all our programs, please explore this website and/or contact any of the members of our office.
