NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-- URAC Wednesday at Westminster means no classes, but it is a day filled with lots of presentations from more than 300 students offering up their academic research and creative endeavors for all to see.
The participating students range from first-years to seniors from nearly every academic discipline. In addition to presentations, students will engage in research roundtables, poster sessions, videos, performances and art displays.
Students in School of Communication Associate Professor Brittany Rowe-Cernevicius' course on audience research will use URAC to gather direct feedback for proposed documentary productions, short film trailers and other capstone projects. That session is scheduled from 3:30-4:45 on Zoom (you can click this link to join).

The pandemic has forced this year's URAC( Undergraduate Research and Arts Celebration) to take on a hybrid format of live and virtual sessions.
A select group of students will offer live in-person podium presentations this year. Each will run about t20-minutes. Each student chosen underwent a competitive selection process based on the quality of submitted abstracts.
