Present Your Findings

Opportunities to Present Your Research

Sharing your findings with others in the academic community and the general public is an essential component of research experience and applied learning. Common formats for disseminating information include books, peer-reviewed journal articles, oral presentations, and poster presentations. Student scholars have opportunities to showcase their research projects all over the country.

Conferences can range in theme by specific academic disciplines or focus on single topics such as advancement in higher education or professional development. Select a conference that is right for you but make sure to consult with your faculty mentor and the UROC staff members. Below are some ideas to help you get started.
