About us

The UNC Augmented and Virtual Reality Interest Group includes over 250 people from all across campus, including faculty, students, and staff from just about every department at UNC Chapel Hill, and then some. Our goal is to promote innovative teaching and learning, research, training, clinical care, and entrepreneurship through the use of immersive technologies.

The interest group is affiliated with a faculty group and Carolina AR/VR – UNC’s XR student group. If you’re a student, consider joining Carolina AR/VR. If you’re interested in the faculty group as well, let us know.
