Our faculty are teacher-scholars dedicated to student learning. Many students reach out directly to professors in their fields of interest to ask if they offer independent study or mentorship opportunities in their labs, offices, or studios.
The URSCO office supports undergrad scholarly experiences at UNCG. That includes hosting a yearly expo that showcases hundreds of undergraduate scholars, offering trainings and workshops, and providing internal funding to support faculty-student projects.
