SNCURCS & Links
In the spring of 2002, in response to the growing prevalence and importance of undergraduate research, UNC General Administration formed the UNC Undergraduate Research Consortium (URC). The consortium includes representatives from the constituent UNC institutions, working together to identify, recommend, and implement activities that expand research opportunities for undergraduate students.
The mission of this inter-institutional, statewide consortium is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate research, creative work, and inquiry-based learning in all fields of study with the support of faculty and other mentors.
State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS)
On Saturday November 16, the 9th Annual State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS) was held the campus of UNC Charlotte. This year’s SNCURCS combined with the NC Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NC-LSAMP) Annual Research Conference to include 349 abstracts, of which 12 were by UNC Greensboro students and their faculty mentors.
Please view this video which highlights SNCURCS 2012 and features three of the seven UNCG undergraduate student participants - Jessica MacNair (Music), Daniel Nasrallah (Chemistry), and David Sykes (Mathematics and Statistics).
