Once You Have Found a Student
Once you have found a UROP student to collaborate on your project, decide with the student whether they will be compensated through pay or credit and discuss your expectations for the term with them, so that they have a clear understanding of your expectations and project deliverables.
Once the mode of UROP participation is choosen and the student has a clear understanding of their project role, the student must submit the appropriate UROP application, by the given deadline for the term, along with a student-authored 1-3 page research proposal, containing a clear statement of purpose and describing in detail his/her planned research duties.
Approving Student Proposals
All of your MIT and CME exchange UROP students will apply online for their UROPs, so you will be using the Online UROP System to review and approval your students' UROP applications. Whereas, your cross-registered Wellesley College UROP students will submit hard-copy coversheets and proposals for your signature. Please refer to the Using the Online UROP System page for system instructions and the access URL to your Faculty Homepage.
By approving your students' UROP application (either online or in print), you are confirming not only your support for the academic content of the proposal, but also acknowledging that no UROP student is allowed to begin work in the lab until all departmental and Institute chemical hygiene and EHS training requirements have been fulfilled. Please make sure to communicate the hazards typically encountered in your laboratory as well as project specific hazards to your UROP students before they begin work and be sure that they have completed all requisite safety training.
End of Term Evaluations
Both you and your students must submit evaluations of your previous UROP collaboration(s) before the new/continuing project can be approved. You can submit your evaluation via your UROP online system homepage or by sending an email version of your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
