A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP)

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers a summer research program that provides undergraduate students from populations underrepresented in graduate study at Illinois with an opportunity to explore careers in research. The program at Illinois provides each student with an experience that will help strengthen his or her knowledge, skills, and understanding of graduate school.

The many activities offered through the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) will afford participants an opportunity to establish important relationships with faculty in their respective fields of study, conduct graduate-level research under the supervision of a University of Illinois renowned faculty member, become acquainted with the culture of graduate school, and to learn what is needed and expected of them as graduate students in their discipline at the University of Illinois.

SROP at Illinois brings talented undergraduate students from across the US and its territories, such as Puerto Rico, to our campus as an introduction to graduate study, research and the admission process. SROP has served more than 1,500 students since 1986.
