Off-Campus Conferences

One of the most effective ways to share your research findings with peers, faculty members and other individuals in your field is by presenting at academic conference. This will also help you to gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of your work. All students who would like to present at a conference are encouraged to submit their proposals to their faculty mentor for approval prior to presenting it at a conference. Please notify the Office of Undergraduate Research when submitting proposals.

If you have been accepted to present at a conference and need assistance with funding for travel, please visit Travel Awards to apply for a grant. You may also apply for funding to attend a conference that will enhance your academic and/or professional careers.

It’s impossible to separate a university and its community. They are connected by vision, by need, by goals. Together, they thrive. The National Conference on Undergraduate Research 2018 embraces this vital relationship in the conference theme, Connection to Place, recognizing the increasing need for direct relevance of an educational experience to the communities that await the college graduate in 2018 and beyond. 

The University of Central Oklahoma warmly invites you to our place to make connections with innovative undergraduate research, new friends, and new places to broaden your perspective.

Find adventure at the Oklahoma City Boathouse district, an official U.S. Olympic and Paralympic training site and home to UCO’s CHK|Central Boathouse.
