Call for undergraduate work submissions; Dixie State’s Utah Conference

ST. GEORGE—Dixie State University will host the ninth annual Utah Conference on Feb. 27, 2015, on undergraduate research, Utah’s higher education consortium dedicated to showcasing the best undergraduate work from across the state. Beginning Monday, applications will be accepted through Nov. 16.

All Utah undergraduates are invited to apply for the conference, which provides an excellent opportunity for students to present their work in a scholarly setting to other students, faculty, field specialists, and community members. Students may present their work through either posters, oral, or performance art presentations. The conference welcomes all academic disciplines, from creative nonfiction to molecular biology. Students are asked to submit a 150-300 word abstract beginning Sept. 15. The deadline to apply is Nov. 16. Mentor approval is required prior to submission.

Besides presenting at the conference, students may participate by volunteering as support staff, and all DSU students are encouraged to attend the event as spectators and supporters of the rich research being conducted at DSU and across Utah. DSU invites all community members who wish to support undergraduate research to come to the conference. This is an excellent networking opportunity.

Utah Council on Undergraduate Research, also known as UCUR, is organized by a committee of representatives from educational institutions across the state. The 2015 UCUR Chair is Stephen B. Armstrong, Ph.D., DSU’s Undergraduate Research Committee Chair and Associate Professor of English.

    Who edited this article? I missed the memo stating that we no longer capitalize proper nouns like Monday.

      Pathetic oversight, especially on an article inviting undergraduate submissions. I stand to blame, Rachel. Thank you for pointing it out, it is edited.

    This just in, acceptance requires you only kill your own grandmother and a temple recommend. Consideration is also based upon incestual tendencies. All hail Joseph Smith. Praise to the man.
