The 29th Annual Student Conference for Research and Creative Arts
April 24-30, 2023

We are pleased to invite both undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines to present their research and creative art in this annual event. Non-UHCL college students as well as high school students are also welcome to participate. 

The public is welcome to attend any sessions at no cost, volunteer, and evaluate presentations (depending on expertise and availability). However, we do ask that you register in advance.

Conference Overview

The Annual Student Conference for Research and Creative Arts is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain experience presenting their accomplishment and to receive feedback from peers and faculty in a supportive environment.  

There are separate tracks for each college. Non-UHCL participations will be assigned to a track that best fits their discipline. There are also prizes for best poster and best presentation per track. 

We appreciate your interest and participation. The conference is an affordable showcase where students present original work (any discipline) in a variety of formats.

First-time student presenters, at both undergraduate and graduate levels, are strongly encouraged.
