Discovery Day

Take your learning to the next level and stop by Discovery Day!

You’ll have the chance to learn more about getting involved in undergraduate research at UTK as well as see posters of student research and creative activity undertaken in the spring or summer months. Discovery Day is a time to view what students are researching both on and off campus and learn about how to get started in undergraduate research at UTK.


Next year’s event will be held Wednesday, August 26, 2020 from 11:00-3:00 pm in Hodges Library, 2nd floor common area.

We invite all, those already involved in research, those interested in getting started, or those who are just curious to stop by the event!

We will offer a special “Getting Started in Undergraduate Research” seminar following Discovery Day, in Hodges Library, Room 213.
