9 a.m. - 4 p.m.


We welcome submissions for the Sixth Annual Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) at the University of Sioux Falls. The permanent theme of the URC is Fresh Perspectives. Soon, we will announce this year’s plenary speaker. Undergraduates in all disciplines are encouraged to submit a recent research project for presentation. Student-faculty collaborative projects are also encouraged. Presentations should be 15-20 minutes and tailored for oral presentation. A panel of faculty will review proposals and then develop panels. Should you have questions about how to prepare a presentation, please consult with your academic advisor and/or Dr. Kevin Cole: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

As with most academic conferences, the primary goal of the URC is to provide a friendly, supportive and collegial venue for the exchange of and debate over research, information and ideas. To that end, the URC offers undergraduates and faculty from different disciplines the opportunity to meet, cultivate relationships, exchange ideas and grow as scholars. In addition, we intend for the URC to provide students with an excellent opportunity to hone professional skills, especially rhetorical skills in speaking and in writing. The URC strives to emulate the environment of a professional conference: panels of presenters, a plenary speaker, complimentary breakfast and luncheon and faculty moderators.
