Digital Colloquium

Welcome to the 2020-2021 URCA Digital Colloquium

The URCA Digital Colloquium presents undergraduate research virtually to the campus and community, replacing the traditional in-person URCA Colloquium event while the campus operates under remote instruction conditions.

The Covid-19 pandemic did little to slow undergraduate researchers at UC Santa Barbara. With grant support from the Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URCA) office, 175 students across 22 departments conducted research with faculty mentors. Over fifty of these projects are shared in the 2021 Digital Colloquium. Their work shows academic rigor and a deep commitment to the community.

Students were invited to present their work in the format they felt best communicated it. The projects include PDF poster presentations, slideshows, videos, and more.
