The museum works with students who are interested in conducting research with the museum, and gives students the opportunity for immersive and interactive learning. Each year, UROP funds hundreds of students who produce new knowledge and creative work in partnership with the U of M’s world-class faculty. UROP serves students and faculty whose learning and teaching goals include outside-the-classroom enrichment.
