All Research. All Majors. All Undergrads: URC Registration Underway
February 21, 2007
Faculty members: Help your students complete the final step of their scholarly
and creative research projects. Urge them to present at the Undergraduate
Research Conference (URC ’07).
Registration is underway for the eighth-annual university-wide conference,
which takes place April 20–28. The URC casts a spotlight on the creative
and scholarly research of undergraduates from all of UNH’s schools
and colleges, featuring symposia, events, performances, and awards.
To participate, undergraduates or their faculty advisers must register
online by Friday, March 9, at: www.unh.edu/urc
All undergraduates from Durham and Manchester who have completed or are
engaged in a research, creative, service learning, or capstone project
are eligible and encouraged to take part.
The URC gives undergraduates the chance to:
- Gain professional skills for careers or continued education;
- Gain presentation experience for résumés or grad school
- Attract attention to their topics;
- Receive awards and scholarships (last year, the URC distributed more
than $23,000 in scholarships to students for award-winning presentations).
URC ‘07 Highlights:
Ever wonder about the thought process behind works of art? This year’s
conference features the all-new ‘The Naked Arts: Creativity Exposed’ event,
an enlightening matinee of performance and introspection featuring students
from the departments of art, music, and theatre and dance.
Other highlights of URC ’07 include the Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering
Symposium featuring presentations of engineering students’ capstone
experiments and interdisciplinary science research from departments across
campus; the 16th annual COLSA Undergraduate Research Conference; and a
keynote lecture on the environmental threats of the 21st century featuring
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John McQuaid, author of “Path of
Destruction: The Devastation of New Orleans and the Coming Age of Superstorms.”
