April 30, 2015

18 Honors students were selected by Wayne State’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program to present at the 29th Annual National Conference on Undergraduate Research, which was held at Eastern Washington University April 16-18, 2015. While not all were able to attend, the Honors College was well represented with 14 individual presentations at the three-day event.

WSU had 20 student presenters at NCUR. 

“NCUR offers a valuable experience in preparing and presenting our students excellent work in the sciences, humanities, and arts, and further allows our students a place to share and exchange ideas from students across the country,” said Kevin Rashid, the Honors Curriculum Coordinator.

He added that presenting their research, not only at a national conference, but in general, allows students to have a deeper and more enriching understanding of their research.
