The UROP Mentor Newsletter Available

Melissa Martin-Greene, Program Coordinator, UROP

I invite you to explore the inaugural issue of the UROP Mentor, a bi-monthly online newsletter designed for MIT faculty and others who regularly mentor UROP students. The February 2007 issue, available at features articles on:

  • The IAP Research Mentor Program (IRMP), an Institute program that introduces freshmen to the research environment through the aid of a peer mentor.

  • An interview with MIT junior, Folkers Rojas who has used UROP as a way to explore research interests outside his major.

  • News and topics both you and your UROP students should consider as we look ahead to the summer session.

We hope you will enjoy reading this edition and will suggest other topics for inclusion in future issues of the UROP Mentor.
