2024 Theme: Undergraduate Research: What’s Next?

What is ConnectUR?

The annual ConnectUR conference will provide a forum around undergraduate research where on-site and online attendees can draw on knowledge exchange, scholarship of teaching and learning, group discussion, tangible and scalable practices, and community building to expand their efforts. This year the conference theme is Undergraduate Research: What’s Next? The conference will focus on revealing what is on the horizon for students, faculty, and institutions in undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative inquiry, even as we pause to take notice of how far we have come. Attendees will get insights on how undergraduate research has, could, or will become a tool for future exploration.
