POSTER PRESENTATION: Undergraduate researchers will gain valuable experience presenting and discussing research with students, faculty, and staff. Presenters will receive peer review, research and presentation feedback, and will field questions about their research. This is an opportunity for scholars to get experience in a collegial, supportive setting.
Poster presentations will be held on Friday, March 12, 2021 from 11:30a.m. - 12:30p.m.
ORAL PRESENTATION: Oral presentations allow McNair Scholars and undergraduate student researchers the opportunity to present their academic research findings to their peers, faculty, and professionals across disciplines. Students are allotted 12 minutes to present their research using a PowerPoint presentation and 3 minutes for questions and answers. Each oral presentation will be moderated by faculty and staff to mange time, facilitate questions and answers, and maintain professional decorum. Oral presentations allow students to share their theories and to solicit feedback on their research. This is an excellent opportunity to enhance research and explore unique intersections based on questions raised and the audience's varying disciplines and perspectives.
Oral presentations will occur on Friday, March 12, 2021 from 1:30p.m. - 3:30p.m. Presentation times will be assigned by Conference staff.
Abstract submissions for both Oral & Poster Presentations are due on February 22, 2021.
