Join us to celebrate the exceptional research conducted by the LRC-sponsored 2nd cohort of Faculty Mentored Undergraduate Research Fellows (FMURF) and their Faculty Mentors. The LRC’s FMURF program pairs leading scholars with outstanding undergraduates to advance research in Latinx Studies across the liberal arts, sciences, professional schools and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. Throughout the entirety of the 2022-23 academic year, Student Fellows worked closely with Faculty to support one or more original research projects in order to develop research skills, critical thinking, and intellectual creativity.

The May 1st symposium is a public event which will commemorate and celebrate the work of the outstanding student-fellow and their faculty mentor. This year’s Fellows and Faculty will present original findings in the fields of linguistics, medicine, local historiography, urban studies, education, curatorial studies, environmental science, criminology and many more!

This event is free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible. For more information or accommodations, please email
