19th Annual UROC Research Conference
The University of Arizona Graduate College is proud to sponsor the 19th Annual Undergraduate Research Opportunities Consortium Research Conference on Monday, Aug. 11 from 1-3 p.m. in the Student Union Memorial Center Grand Ballroom. This year, a record number of 180 talented UROC students will showcase the research projects in which they were engaged this summer under the guidance of UA faculty mentors. This event is free, open to the public, and an excellent opportunity for the UA community to reach out to show support for the next generation of scientists and scholars. Approximately one third of this year's UROC students hail from Mexican or Latin American universities, another third from Arizona (UA, Tohono O'odham Community College, or Northern Arizona University), and the remaining third are from U.S. universities (Rutgers, Rice, Northwestern, Carlton College, Ft. Lewis College, UTEP, UC schools, among others). Student posters will be arranged by disciplines, as follows: agricultural and environmental sciences, biological life sciences, computer and information sciences, engineering, medical and allied health sciences, mathematics and statistics, physical sciences, psychology and social sciences, humanities, and education.
