Faculty: Are your students interested in URC?
The Undergraduate Research Conference 2004 (aka URC 04) will be
a weeklong, campuswide celebration of the research, creativity,
and scholarly work of UNH undergraduates. The conference will take
place from April 26 through May 1. Students from Durham and Manchester
who have completed or are engaged in a research, creative, service
learning, or capstone project are encouraged to present. Organizers
hope that UNH faculty and staff will urge eligible undergraduates
to participate in the conference, and encourage all students to
attend URC activities. To present at URC 04, students or their faculty
advisers must register by March 12: www.unh.edu/urc.
Visit the URC Web site for a complete list of conference events.
