Nominate a Student

Nominations for the 2024 URC are now closed. Check back next year for the 2025 URC nominations. 

The Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) is the only campus-wide academic year conference to recognize undergraduate scholars in all fields and provide them the opportunity to present their academic pursuits at small roundtables moderated by an expert in their discipline.

Students must be nominated by a faculty member to participate in the URC. Nominations from postdoctoral scholars and graduate students are not accepted.

In early-January the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs will send a notice to all faculty soliciting nominations for student presenters. 


Frequently Asked Questions

I am a post-doc, can I nominate a student I mentor?

While we recognize that post-docs offer valuable mentorship to undergrad students, at this time only faculty can nominate students to present at URC.

How many students can I nominate?

To ensure that all nominated students get the chance to present at the URC, we kindly ask nominators to nominate no more than 3 students. If there are more than 3 students you would like to nominate, you may want to reach out to a colleague who has also worked with some of those students who might "split" nominations with you. We appreciate your enthusiasm for supporting undergraduate research!

 Who can serve as a moderator?

We welcomed faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and alumni as moderators. Once you register for the conference, we try our best to assign you to a round table that aligns with your specialty and works with your indicated scheduling preferences.
