Student Conferences

Undergraduate Research Conference

The Undergraduate Research Conference promises to be an exciting opportunity to share experiences common to all students. Each spring undergraduates from all disciplines demonstrate what they have learned through their research work to students, faculty, field specialists, and community members in a scholarly setting. A unique educational and networking event, the conference encourages interdisciplinary exchange, bringing together students from all disciplines at Boise State University. Presentations include both visual and oral displays of work in all academic disciplines, from art history to molecular biology. First held in 2003, the conference has grown to include more than 500 participants from all colleges at Boise State University.
