LUROP: The Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) is the umbrella under which all funded undergraduate research programs offered at Loyola University Chicago are centralized. The goal of LUROP is to enrich, enhance, diversify, and individualize the learning experiences of undergraduate students. Each program is unique, providing students from any school or department with the opportunity to conduct research in their area of interest. For more information, please visit the LUROP website.
