Fall 2023 Symposium on Undergraduate Research, Creativity and Community Engagement

November 28, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

The Fall 2023 Symposium on Undergraduate Research, Creativity and Community Engagement will take place across campus on Tuesday, November 28, and will feature hundreds of undergraduate research and creative project presentations by UNC Asheville students and presentations about their service-learning experiences.

Undergraduate research and creative activity is self-directed/designed academic work by an individual student or team of students that addresses a research question with the expectation of a scholarly or creative product intended for publication or presentation on or off-campus.  UNC Asheville founded the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) more than 30 years ago, and celebrated the milestone by bringing more than 4,000 undergraduate research students to campus in 2016.

The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Program (URCAP) offers hands-on experience in the field, guided by expert faculty who let students take the lead.  More than 65 percent of UNC Asheville students complete original research in their field of study through the University’s nationally recognized Program (URCAP)—an opportunity most often found in graduate programs.  UNC Asheville’s URCAP has been recognized in U.S. News and World Report’s national rankings as a “program of distinction.”
