The 2014 URC will be April 11, 2014. Presentation and guest registration is now closed. Walk-in registration is available the day of the event (t-shirts and lunches will not be available for walk-in registration).

Guest information: Need to know about parking, check-in, guest wi-fi, or anything else? Check our information page!

Update: There has been a bug in the system that has resulted in a change of presentations for many students, especially in Psychology and Pharmacy/Exercise Science. All students, regardless of area, should view the conference program to review your presentation time. The app has the correct time--do not rely on information that might have initially been sent by the room moderator.

Thank you for your interest in the twenty-sixth annual Undergraduate Research Conference at Butler University. Last year's silver anniversary featured nearly 500 undergraduate students from 45 different colleges and universities presenting their research in a wide variety of disciplines. Currently, there are over 500 presentations scheduled to be presented at this year's URC on April 11, 2014.

Update (March 14): if you need accommodations near campus, check our new page

This year, we are featuring a slogan of "cultivating intellectual growth." We are also seeking to cultivate a spirit of resource conservation and sustainability, and we will be offering tours of some of our cutting-edge facilities to our conference guests. Our President Danko signed a climate commitment pledge in 2012, and we are proud to have LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for our Pharmacy Building and the new Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts. The Butler Farm is a leader in urban ecology education. Our conference will offer you the opportunity to help us preserve resources by giving you the option to download an online conference schedule application in lieu of a printed program book. Additionally, we are looking to dramatically reduce the use of bottled water at this year's event.

Another new feature will be a combined poster session, in which all of our poster presentations will be featured in a dedicated time slot without�minimal conflicting oral presentation sessions. We have listened to your feedback and look forward to giving these students the attention and focus that they deserve.

We welcome your attendance and participation in this year's conference on April 11, 2014.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the event.
