UNC is a top-tier research university with an impressive commitment to undergraduate research, and the celebration will showcase the dedication and talent of students from diverse disciplines.
For students already engaged in research, this event will be an opportunity to learn from peers and explore both related and unfamiliar fields of study. Research does not occur in isolation — communication is essential, and the celebration will provide a forum for interdisciplinary interaction.
Students not currently involved in research should also attend the celebration to learn about the abundance of research opportunities and to be inspired by the accomplishments of peers.
We all benefit from hearing fellow students share their experiences and lessons learned, and the wide-ranging perspectives represented at the celebration will be especially beneficial to students curious about different types of research occurring here.
As an undergraduate researcher, I encourage all students to attend.
Undergraduate research matters because it lets students learn outside of the traditional classroom — we should all celebrate this.
