Are you interested in attending an Undergraduate Research Conference?

Student Benefits

Students who pursue research during their undergraduate career benefit from the opportunities many institutions only offer at a graduate or doctoral level. Conducting research encourages problem-solving skills and personal inquiry, enhances hands-on involvement within a discipline or major, and teaches a variety of skills that cannot be taught from a textbook.

The annual CAA and NCUR conferences encourage students who participate in this unique professional experience to take full advantage of the opportunities available. These students in the past have boasted the experience helped them:

  • come together with other representatives from the institutions with similar interests;
  • have an opportunity to present scholarly research endeavors to peers and faculty in a professional setting;
  • represent and experience an array of disciplines from traditional sciences to the humanities;
  • have the opportunity to hear a high-profile keynote speaker;
  • gather information about graduate school admission and career preparation;
  • gain experience for their future career, education, or resume; and
  • network outside bounds of their immediate geographical region and institution.
Advisor Benefits

All student research is closely mentored by an academic advisor within their major discipline. An advisor's one-on-one attention provides guidance to young researchers as they moved through the process of planning, research, and getting their work published. This close relationship is often a point of pride for an advisor, or mentor, which bears witness to a young researcher's progress as they move from a promising student to a published researcher.
