Opportunities to Present Work

The following list of events and conferences to consider when presenting your work is always being updated but is not exhaustive. If you have a research event in your department or college that doesn’t appear below, please contact our office and we’ll be glad to add it to the list.

If you have been collaborating with a faculty member or research team, always clear your ideas with your faculty supervisor.

Finding Opportunities

Make sure to talk to your academic advisor and professors about programs offered through departments and colleges. Search the internet for the latest and most complete offerings.

When you clear your proposed presentation ideas with your faculty supervisor, he or she may have recommendations about where you can share your work. Depending on the quality and significance of the work, your supervisor may recommend that you submit it for presentation at a regional or national conference specific to the discipline.

On-campus Research Events

  • Research Week
    Research Week is a campus-wide celebration of undergraduate research and creative activity. It unites existing programs, events, and activities that showcase undergraduate work. It also highlights the many research opportunities available to students.
  • College of Liberal Arts Undergraduate Research Symposium
    Each spring, the College of Liberal Arts hosts the Undergraduate Research Oral Presentation Symposium in conjunction with Research Week activities.
  • College of Natural Sciences Annual Undergraduate Research Forum
    The Undergraduate Research Forum, held each spring, is an opportunity for students to present and share the research they’ve done over the past semester or year(s). Faculty and other students are able to see and celebrate the cutting edge research that undergraduate students are doing, and representatives from industry get a taste of where science is going and who’s taking it there.

National Conferences on Undergraduate Research

The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. NCUR welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of academic curriculum.
