April is Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month and on April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates "Light It Up Blue" in commemoration of World Autism Awareness Day.

The UNC Charlotte campus will have blue lights on our Dickson Gate entrance as part of this event as a global community raises awareness of autism and recognizes individuals with autism for their unique talents and gifts. Thousands of iconic landmarks, communities, businesses and homes across the globe will unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals around the world with autism.

URC Registration Open until April 1

Registration is open until April 1 for UNC Charlotte’s Undergraduate Research Conference (URC). The conference, now in its fourth year, is a university-wide showcase of undergraduate research projects. It is sponsored by Academic Affairs, Atkins Library, Charlotte Research Institute, and the Levine Scholars program. This year’s conference will take place on Friday, April 24, in the Barnhardt Student Activity Center.

The work presented can range from in-class projects to year-long honors theses and everything in between. Students can present their work in poster or oral formats, individually (oral or poster) or in groups (poster). Both formats are judged during the conference and general prizes are awarded by discipline.
