Undergraduate Research Conference
42nd Annual Undergraduate Research Conference – Friday, May 6, 2016
The College takes seriously the role of research in the liberal arts education of undergraduates. Students regularly benefit from direct contact with our research faculty and are empowered and encouraged to conduct their own inquiries. All undergraduates at the University are invited to participate in and present their research at the College’s 42nd annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Friday, May 6, 2016. Projects showcasing undergraduate work in the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities are welcome. The work may have been done in connection with a course or as independent or supervised study.
Undergraduate Research Conference Information Sessions: In order to help students prepare their URC application and abstract, a series of information sessions will be held prior to the URC application deadline. Dean Joel Ward and a past URC presenter will be on hand to discuss the application process, the logistics of the conference, how to write a winning abstract and more! These sessions will be useful for all presenters but are intended especially for first time URC presenters:
Tuesday, March 22, 5–6PM
Wednesday, March 23, 6–7PM
Note: All Sessions will be held in Silver 907
Presentation Workshops: In order to help participants prepare for the Conference, we will be hosting a series of presentation workshops, 2 for students doing panel presentations and 2 for students doing poster presentations.
These interactive workshops will focus on both the theoretical and practical aspects of communicating research. Faculty from NYU's Writing in the Disciplines program will facilitate these sessions and fellow undergraduates with experience presenting at conferences will also be on hand to answer questions and provide insights from their own experience. Students attending the sessions are strongly encouraged to bring current drafts of their presentation to receive critique and guidance from fellow students and workshop facilitators.
- Panel Workshops: Tuesday, April 19; Wednesday, April 27
- Poster Workshops: Wednesday, April 20; Tuesday, April 26
