The semiannual celebration of CURCA includes oral presentations and over
100 posters from talented undergraduates from disciplines across campus.
CURCA helps connect students with faculty to develop a greater understanding of
process, research, and outcomes. As a result, they are also taught how to apply
this knowledge to real-world activities to foster deeper learning and discovery.
Through CURCA, students can apply for funding to support their research or for
travel to conferences to present their work.
