For Students


At Loyola University Chicago, undergraduate students have the opportunity to pursue exciting experiential learning opportunities, get hands-on experience, and engage their communities through undergraduate research. Students conduct research across the disciplines in classrooms, labs, archives, and communities, through formal coursework, independent study, and/or one of LUROP’s 15 funded research fellowships. Building on academic coursework and intellectual passions and supported by faculty, graduate student, and community partner mentors, Loyola students have transcribed immigration narratives at a community resource center, developed innovative dance choreography, explored the Great Lakes coastal wetlands, and investigated pediatric injuries. LUROP provides resources, workshops, and professional development opportunities to support undergraduate research throughout the year, culminating in the Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium on Saturday April 13th, 2019.
