SUP is the recruitment arm of The Graduate School’s Diversity and Student Success program with the goal of building upon the DSS mission to diversify Carolina’s graduate population. SUP works directly with the various summer undergraduate research programs at Carolina as a way of creating connections and providing tools necessary for the transition into a graduate career

The goal is achieved through:

Professional Development Seminars
Community-Building and Networking Opportunities
Research Symposium   All students have the opportunity at the end of the summer to present their research to the campus community and public arena.
