SURG (SDG Undergraduate Research Group) is a newly-formed undergraduate research group affiliated with the UC Berkeley Office of Sustainability and guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We strive to research local cross-cutting issues, empower undergraduate voices, and increase the accessibility of research on campus. Undergraduate researchers will join working groups that tackle an area of sustainability tied to the UN SDGs, contribute to a collaborative research report, and present their findings to key stakeholders.

SURG was created with the goal of proliferating research around the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
