By most yardsticks, 2020 was a rough year; one that challenged our collective resilience. Bushfires blazing across Australia, widespread political and social unrest, and above all a global pandemic defined a truly tumultuous year. The quest to develop a COVID-19 vaccine is a timely reminder of the importance of research for societal good. For many scientists and researchers across all fields, that journey begins as an undergraduate. As editors of the ANU Undergraduate Research Journal, we are proud to once again curate an outstanding selection of essays across multiple disciplines from undergraduate students at The Australian National University. Topical and ongoing concerns, from climate change to #MeToo to the welfare of Indigenous Australians, are discussed in the essays that follow.
