COVID-19 update

We are going forward with the 9th Annual Undergraduate Research Conference!

However, due to COVID-19 concerns and the general movement of campus activities to remote formats, we will be moving the conference online.  

Here are the details:

  • Students have the following options: submitting just their abstract; submitting their poster/slides; or submitting a video of them presenting their poster/slides. 
  • The presentations will be permanently available, starting April 24, 2020 at:  The Conference Program Booklet will also contain links to each individual presentation.
    • Please support our presenters by checking out their presentations and sending an email with questions (or just saying congratulations on a job well done!)
    • Some students or faculty mentors may wish to remove their content-in this case, the presentations will be available through the last day of classes, May 8. 
  •  The Keynote presentation by Dr. Kristy Duran will take place live at noon on April 24 via Teams.

    • Please register for the conference to ensure you receive the invitation to the Teams Keynote!
    • During the keynote, type your questions in the chat feature on Teams, and Dr. Duran will answer it during the Q & A portion at the end of her presentation.
