  • UM Conference on Undergraduate Research

    Sociology undergraduates who are currently working on research projects with faculty should be interested in the 14th annual UM Conference on Undergraduate Research (UMCUR).  The conference will be held in the University Center on Friday, April 17. UM students of all majors are invited to present their research and creative scholarship through oral presentations and posters. This is a wonderful opportunity to add a presentation of your own scholarship to your resume and to get feedback on your work from others.  To propose an UMCUR poster or presentation, students must submit an abstract (circa 300 words) of their research topic. The student’s faculty mentor must review and approve the abstract prior to submission, so contact your faculty advisor for more information. The Call for Submissions is online. The submission deadline is Friday, Feb. 20. For further information, please contact the Davidson Honors College at 243-2541 or
