Presentation Opportunities

Presenting your research is a key component to sharing your work. Presenting at the undergraduate level strengthens your communication skills and requires you to assess and practice your messaging. The Office of Undergraduate Research offers support for on-campus, statewide, and national presentation opportunities.
