Select undergraduate students from each of the University’s 17 constituent institutions will present at Research in the Capital on Wednesday, April 13, 2011. This biennial event at the NC General Assembly provides state legislators the opportunity to meet undergraduate researchers and to learn about their efforts to address social, economic and cultural issues impacting our state.
The 2011 Research in the Capital event coincides with National Undergraduate Research Week, as declared by US Congress. Leaders at all levels recognize the ensuing benefits of undergraduate research to the participants, their communities, and the nation.
Among many other benefits, undergraduate research experiences have been found to increase intellectual gains and academic achievement, the retention of minority students, and interest in pursuing advanced degrees.
