Seventh Annual Undergraduate Research Conference
April 23, 2015
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The permanent theme of the
Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) is Fresh Perspectives. Undergraduates in all disciplines are encouraged to
submit a recent research project for presentation. Student-faculty
collaborative projects are also encouraged. Presentations are
15-20 minutes and tailored for oral presentation. A panel
of faculty review proposals and then develop panels.
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, the URC is intended 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
