COVID-19 Update - Statement from URA
The health, safety, and well-being of the research community at Georgia Tech is our top priority. Based on the communications we have received from Georgia Tech and the University System of Georgia, Georgia Tech will be continuing the remainder of the semester online due to COVID-19. This means that the Undergraduate Research Ambassadors will be adjusting many of our events, initiatives, and functions to reflect this change, while simultaneously maintaining our commitment to helping students conducting undergradaute research or interested in research opportunities during this time. Below are some updates regarding our functionality and continuinty of URA for Spring 2020.
Please stay safe and healthy, and make sure to follow the CDC's guidelines for prevention and care here.

URA's Office Hours will continue to be held this semester virtually. We are currently in the process of transitioning to virtual office hours, and we will keep you updated in this transition. You can expect to hear back from us regarding virtual ways to meet with ambassadors starting March 30th.
