The UNC Charlotte Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) is a university-wide showcase of research projects completed by undergraduate students of all levels from all colleges and departments in the university. The URC is sponsored by Academic Affairs, the Atkins Library and the Levine Scholars program.
The work presented ranges from in-class projects to year-long honors theses and everything in between. The type of research varies depending on the discipline, and includes everything from philosophical analysis to hands-on data collection in a lab or in the field.
Students have the choice of presenting their work in poster or oral formats. Students may present individually or in groups. Both are judged during the conference and general prizes are awarded by discipline following the key-note speaker.
Students have an optional opportunity to apply for an Atkins Library Undergraduate Research Award. Five awards of $1000 each will be awarded annually.
