Join us for Undergraduate Research Week
Get ready to celebrate Undergraduate Research Week (URW) 2022 on April 18 - 22, 2022.
On November 16, 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives declared the week of April 11, 2011, as "Undergraduate Research Week." Since that time, CUR has designated a week in April each year as "Undergraduate Research Week." This is a national celebration in which CUR showcases what other campuses are doing to celebrate UR, congratulate students on their research, and thank those faculty and mentors who have helped guide the way for UR.

Come prepared to interact and engage with your peers about your research!

The URCA office will host periodic Chat & Chews throughout the semester. These will be informal conversations with Undergraduate Research Ambassadors on selected topics.
