UMD takes great pride in the accomplishments of its undergraduates. Often these efforts are part of our Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). However in addition to this formal program, numerous undergraduates pursue independent studies on their own. Almost two decades ago, UMD started a spring showcase so as to afford our undergraduates an opportunity to present, in a public venue, these achievements.
New this year, there will be two Showcases, Thursday December 4, 2014 and Tuesday April 21, 2015. The program, which starts at 11 am and will continue until 3 pm, will feature both verbal and poster presentations.
All undergraduates who pursued some type of research or artistic project are eligible to participate.
