Honors Students to Participate in 2013 Undergraduate Research Conference

The Honors Program will present its Fifteenth Annual Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) on Wednesday, April 24, in the Memorial Union. The conference will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

At this year’s conference, 14 UND seniors will present the results of multi-semester independent research projects. During their research, each student works closely with a faculty mentor who serves as chairperson of the resulting senior thesis. The senior thesis process is overseen by the Honors Committee, whose membership consists of faculty appointed by the University Senate and students elected by the Honors Program.

Come celebrate a practice the American Association of Colleges & Universities has called a “high impact best practice” for undergraduate institutions: undergraduate research.

For more information, please contact Honors Program Undergraduate Research Coordinator Brian Schill at 777.4402 or brian.schill@und.edu, or Sally Pyle at 777.3302 or sally.pyle@und.edu.
