A number of departments and individual courses host seminars and symposia that feature the research of undergraduates. See the list below for departmental events and ask your instructors about opportunities to present your research or to learn more about the research your peers are doing. We welcome listings of undergraduate research seminars, events or workshops related to student research from individual departments or campus organizations. Please contact us at to link to or list seminar or workshop information.

We also welcome your requests to co-sponsor your symposium if UNC undergraduates will be presenting their work and if the event is open to the public. Requests to co-sponsor workshops related to student research are also eligible for support.
