O’Brien Center for Student Success

Student Participation

Students interested in URIC should express interest to their faculty advisor who will then connect them with the URIC faculty-in-residence. On average, 15 students participate in URIC; however, the number is growing and selection is competitive.

Students are expected to work an average of 20 hours per week over the course of the summer.
