Undergraduate Research Writing Conference Goes Virtual
The Undergraduate Research Writing Conference (URWC) is an annual event that showcases outstanding work completed by students across Rutgers University–New Brunswick. Students who earned As in any of the Writing Program’s research writing courses are invited to submit their papers for consideration, and the process of selection is highly competitive. Selected students usually have the opportunity to present their work in a setting modeled on an academic conference, and the event provides an interdisciplinary platform for sharing ideas and networking in a professional environment.
This year, the URWC team transformed the conference into a virtual celebration, ensuring that students still had the opportunity to showcase their work and build professional experience despite not being on campus.
The URWC is sponsored by the Rutgers Writing Program, Rutgers University Libraries, the Rutgers Department of English, the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, and the Division of Undergraduate Academic Affairs.
