#URC2021 Presenters, mentors, reviewers, moderators, attendees, sponsors, and campus mentors: THANK YOU! In a year like no other, we have been proud to host a conference like no other (at least for us). Although our live Impact Talk sessions have now all wrapped up, we invite you to take some time to scroll through our Abstract Directory and check out the recorded student presentations linked from the "YouTube" buttons on the individual Abstract cards.

About #URC2021

In its 14th year, the TTU URC remains one of the largest interdisciplinary undergraduate research conferences in the nation, with more than 300 students from sharing their knowledge and ingenuity through poster and oral presentations, artistic performances, and visual art exhibits. URC presenters and performers represent a broad range of fields, including the humanities, performing arts, biological and chemical sciences, social sciences, and physical sciences.

Beginning in 2019, the TTU URC partnered with innovative departments from across campus to establish Discoveries to Impact Week and highlight the full spectrum of transformative experiences and world-changing student scholarship! In 2021, the third annual DTI Week is made possible through an exciting new partnership between the Center for Transformative Undergraduate Experiences (TrUE), the Innovation Hub at Research Park, the Center for Integration of STEM Education Research (CISER), and University Outreach and Engagement.
