Undergraduate Scholars Conference @ ND

Each year, on the Friday of reading days, the University of Notre Dame provides several venues to showcase and celebrate the depth and breadth of the research being conducted by undergraduates in all disciplines across campus. To participate in research and scholarship is to contribute to important conversations taking place in a range of academic and creative fields. All undergraduates are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity by adding their voice and gaining professional experience.

The 2017 Undergraduate Scholars Conference (USC) sessions will be held on Friday, May 5, between 9am and 2pm in the Hesburgh Library. More information can be found below.
