UBRP students examine rocks at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum

“I give to UBRP because it is a wonderful program that has offered me a thorough introduction to research and the people behind it. These people have taught me how to focus, improvise, and endure to find answers to the questions that perplex us. The skills and experiences I’ve gained in UBRP will stay with me for the rest of my life.” – Benjamin Rivera, UBRP & EHS-TRUE Student
