The Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity Conference is a premier annual event at The University of Alabama that provides undergraduates an opportunity to highlight their research or creative activity.

In addition to bringing attention to the excellent work of University students, the Conference allows students to gain experience presenting, compete for cash prizes and form relationships with their faculty mentors and fellow Conference presenters.

The Office of Undergraduate Research in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development is very excited to announce the first Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Showcase. This is event was created to highlight the creative work that  undergraduate students are doing on the UA campus. The event will feature live performances by students in theater, musical theater, dance, opera, fashion, music, advertising, public relations, journalism and creative media, and poetry. The Showcase will be on Wednesday, March 29th at 5 PM in the Ferguson Center Theater.
