  • Give students the opportunity to practice public speaking to prepare for future conferences
  • Give students the chance to network with other students and faculty
  • Help students grow as emerging professionals in their fields of study

To achieve these ends, the URS is a congenial, positive, professional environment, and faculty volunteers serve as moderators to provide informal yet constructive feedback to everyone who presents. The URS will take place on:

 Saturday | April 23, 2022

8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
