2022 Celebration of Undergraduate Research
The 23rd Annual Celebration of Undergraduate Research will be held on Monday, April 25, 2022, from 2-5pm in the Blue Zone of Kenan Stadium. This in-person event will feature three sequential poster sessions starting at 2pm, 3pm, and 4pm. Nearly 300 undergraduate researchers representing a wide array of disciplines from across the University presented their work at the most recent pre-COVID Celebration (2019), and we are thrilled to be able to return to an in-person setting for this year’s event.
Carolina undergraduates who wish to present their research at the Celebration must register before the April 10, 2022 deadline. All presenters who have registered will then submit their abstract, poster PDF, and an optional but recommended three-minute video narrative to present the highlights of their research before April 22, 2022. These materials will be made available for online access on the day of the in-person event. Presenter registration details can be found on the 2022 Celebration website.
The Celebration is open to the public, and all members of the Carolina community are encouraged to attend. Attendees who are not presenting do not need to pre-register.
