Call for abstracts for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Forum

The 2024 Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Forum (URCAF) will take place Friday, April 12 in the Rhatigan Student Center.

The purpose of the important event is to enable WSU’s undergraduate student researchers to present research under the guidance of faculty mentors. Students who have conducted research in 2023-24 are encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation. Winners in each category of applied sciences, natural sciences and engineering, and social sciences and humanities will receive a $250 prize, and second place finishers will receive $100. All participants will be provided lunch at the Rhatigan Student Center and will gain valuable experience exhibiting their research.

Abstract submissions are due by March 29. Early submissions are encouraged.

Information about the event can be found on the URCAF webpage. For questions, contact John Hammond at
