The Center for Experiential Learning and the Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) launched a new resource for Loyola Faculty and Students called the Student Research Opportunity Center. This online resource allows Loyola Faculty across the entire university to post undergraduate research opportunities, and it allows Loyola Students to search these opportunities. In addition, Loyola students are able to search external opportunities such as REUs, conferences, publication outlets, and other undergraduate research experiences.
