Undergraduate Research Council (URC)

The Undergraduate Research Council exists to provide the resources for students to gain experience in professional environments through pursuing their academic interests and share their work with the Gordon community. The URC encourages students to do research, follow their passions, and present in formal academic conferences. Conferences allow students to appreciate the fruits of their labor and enable them to join the conversation in their discipline. Students can apply for funding from the URC to cover any conference-related costs.
