Undergraduate Research Week

Undergraduate Research Week (URW) is a week that celebrates research and researchers across campus. During URW, students have the chance to learn about the research happening on Emory’s campus in all disciplines. Events during Undergraduate Research Week include departmental symposia, featured talks, student panels, workshops, and the Emory College Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium.

The week is an opportunity for the Emory community to explore, celebrate, and be inspired by the research that Emory undergraduates have conducted over the course of the semester and the year. This year’s Undergraduate Research Week is April 23-27, 2018.
