Higher Education is full of opportunities and this annual conference is a great way for you to present work related to course research, creative work in the visual and performing arts, study abroad trips, community service, and much more.

Effective presentation skills are valuable for all future careers. The conference is a public forum to enhance your skills, to share your work, to see the work of others in your field, and to give and receive valuable feedback.

The conference is free to attend and open to the public! We're proud of the work our undergraduate community goes and we know you will be too.
