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 applications;
  • 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.”
