The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Conference is an annual event at The University of Alabama that provides undergraduate students an opportunity to highlight their work in Research or Creative fields. The conference was initiated in 2002 by the College of Arts and Sciences and has grown over the years to include all Colleges on campus. Through the collaborative efforts of the Office for Research, the College Undergraduate Research Coordinators, the Undergraduate Research Creative Activities Committee, and faculty mentors this has become a premier annual event at The University of Alabama.
The event presents a wide variety of research and creative activities ranging from mechanical engineering to the performing arts. The Conference gives the contributing students practical experience in defending or performing their work. Judges evaluate the presentations and the winning entries receive cash prizes.
