48th Annual Undergraduate Research Conference Friday May 6, 2022
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 annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Friday, May 6, 2022. Projects in STEM, Social Sciences, and Humanities are welcome!
Many of the video presentations from the previous two (virtual) Conferences are still available on our NYU Stream channels:

In order to help participants prepare for the Conferece, we will be hosting a series of presentation workshops for poster and panel sessions. These interactive workshops will focus both on 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 recieve critique and guidance from fellow students and workshop facilitators.
