UCLA ranks among the top research universities in the world, and undergraduate research and creative inquiry are key components of the Bruin experience. Undergraduate Research Week celebrates the work of students across campus who are performing research and creative inquiry in all disciplines. Whether they are in a laboratory or library, in the field or on a Zoom screen, UCLA students have excelled in their cutting-edge research even in these unprecedented times.
Research and creativity begin with curiosity and the desire to create something new. They require mastery of skills and crafts, imaginative leaps, and a whole lot of persistence. Undergraduate Research Week exhibits the UC mission in action, with the next generation of global leaders demonstrating new scholarship across a wide range of intellectual pursuits.
Undergraduate Research Week will be held virtually from May 24-28, 2021. The Undergraduate Research & Creativity Showcase, our premier event featuring hundreds of live student presentations, will be held on May 25.
