URD offers students high-impact learning experiences by creating opportunities for one-on-one mentorship with faculty and helps students develop in the areas of critical thinking, informational literacy, problem-solving, and reasoning skills. It also helps develop “soft skills,” such as confidence, competency, and a sense of ownership and responsibility over one’s academic or creative work.
