Empowering Minds: Inspiring and Showcasing Undergraduate Research

KPU Faculty of Arts is excited to invite faculty and student researchers to join us at our upcoming conference, Empowering Minds: Inspiring and Showcasing Undergraduate Research, where we will explore the significance of undergraduate research and ways to support it. Engaging undergraduates in research provides them with learning experiences beyond traditional classrooms. Hands-on engagement, critical thinking, analysis, and collaborative teamwork in research offer students invaluable skills, cultivate heightened curiosity, and prepare them for the challenges and opportunities after graduation. Thus, our conference seeks to delve into the best practices, strategies, resources, and success stories that have significantly impacted undergraduate students' research experiences. Join us in celebrating the transformative power of undergraduate research.

Please note: Our conference will feature hybrid in-person and online sessions to accommodate presenters and participants. Panel discussions will be available both in person and online, and our poster and demo sessions will be conducted exclusively in person, providing presenters with opportunities for direct engagement with conference attendees.
