Words from the Organizing Committee

  • The organizing committee is very excited to be bringing SURC back! We hope the 2024 meeting will carry on the tradition of providing an excellent meeting to highlight undergraduate chemistry research.

  • As an attendee of SURC as a graduate student in 2020, my enthusiasm for the event has only grown, and I am thrilled to be part of the committee spearheading the revival of SURC 2024, an extraordinary opportunity exclusively crafted for undergraduate chemistry students in the Southeast!

  • I first heard about SURC in 2005 when Mississippi State hosted it. I have attended almost every SURC since giving dozens of my students the opportunity to present at this regional conference. Hopefully, we will be able to bring SURC back in a big way after three years without it.
