Union students present their research in a variety of venues.
Each year more than 500 students present the results of their creative, scholarly and research achievement to faculty, other students and parents in early May. Many at Union say that Steinmetz Day is their favorite day of the academic year. It is an opportunity to celebrate student achievement and to learn about new academic areas.
Students who have done research at Union have the opportunity to present their results to a regional, national or international audience. Trips are often organized by faculty. Funding for trips is available through the Student Conference Travel Grant program. Union students have presented their work at:
American Chemical Society National and Regional Meetings
American Neuropsychiatric Association
APS Division of Nuclear Physics
ASIANetwork Annual Conference
ASME Human Powered Vehicle Challenge
Eastern Psychological Association Conference
Geological Society of America, Northeast Region
SAE Aero Airplane Design Competition
Unlike meetings of other professional bodies, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all areas of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.
