Pacific University Undergraduate Research Conference Set for Tuesday, Nov. 13

Pacific University will hold its annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Tuesday, Nov. 13 in the Multipurpose Room on the lower level of the University Center at Pacific’s Forest Grove Campus. 

The conference is an opportunity for Pacific undergraduate students who are juniors in standing to showcase their work, much of which results from collaborative endeavors they embark on with Pacific professors.

Free and open to the public, the conference begins at 4:30 p.m. with a panel discussion, followed by a pair of poster sessions from 5:30 to 7:10 in which hundreds of Pacific students will speak to their findings on a variety of topics.

Many of the students will present research they conducted with faculty members during the past summer. Faculty are often engaged in long-term projects, and students conduct shorter segments of the research, and sometimes their own studies, which can result in senior projects.

The research opportunities provide undergraduate students field and lab work, where they build new skills and gain invaluable experience — all while pursuing new discoveries in their disciplines. 

The conference is sponsored by the university's College of Arts & Sciences and the university’s Career Development Center.
