2022 UNC McNair Scholars Research Colloquium

July 21, 2022

Hello UNC Campus Community!

On behalf of the students in the UNC McNair Scholars Program, we sincerely invite you to join us for the UNC McNair Scholars Research Colloquium on Monday, July 25th at 1:00 pm in Candelaria 1065.   We will have our research scholars give 12-minute oral presentations on their original undergraduate research project AY 2021-2022.  This event gives them a chance to share with you their research findings, and it also allows them to practice presenting one more time before we depart on Tuesday, July 26th to go to the UCLA National McNair Scholars Conference is Los Angeles, California.  Our students have worked hard this year to complete original research through the support of UNC faculty mentors, librarians, the administration and staff and we want to thank you for that support helping them complete this work.  We will serve refreshments following the event and we hope you will join us!
