Conference Details

The Undergraduate Research Conference includes faculty-led workshops on research development, abstract-writing, and presentation. This allows students to receive individualized feedback and support as they work through every step of the research process. The conference is a valuable open arena for students to present and discuss research-in-progress with their professors and peers. It offers undergraduates from different disciplines the opportunity to meet, cultivate connections, and exchange ideas. 

Conference Benefits

For students pursuing an academic (or even non-academic) career, the effective presentation of research is a key skill. Publicly sharing academic work improves presentation skills and gives students the change to receive valuable feedback from professors, peers, and community members. It also provides students with the opportunity to raise their professional profile and add a significant accomplishment to their resumes.

Along with benefiting the presenters, the conference also benefits the wider Bryan community by serving as a site for intellectual exchanges, cross-discipline collaboration, and academic inspiration.
