The 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 the Office of Undergraduate Research, Academic Affairs, the Atkins Library, the Honors College, the Division of Research, and the Levine Scholars program. Disciplinary and Honors College awards will be presented.

During the submission process students are asked to confirm faculty approval of the students’ research projects and abstracts.  Shortly after the submission deadline, faculty may be contacted to confirm the student’s status. The work presented can range from in-class projects to year-long honors theses and everything in between.
