UConnect Logo UConnect is a UM-sponsored Student Organization striving to increase student passion and involvement in undergraduate research across all disciplines.


UConnect is a peer-based networking platform focused on research across all disciplines. We strive to facilitate positive networking by bringing together three groups of people:

  • Students who have research experience
  • Students who wish to have research experience
  • Scientific researchers

We focus on getting students exposure to all available opportunities, connecting them with a lab experience of their choice, and promoting students with experience already. UConnect offers many opportunities to network, present, shadow, and attend conferences.
