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: All 2020 seminars will be offered virtually

(browse 2019 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.

         NOTE: 2021 Research Symposium pending decision
