Posted on 3/26/2013 2:55:36 PM

The eighth annual IUP Undergraduate Scholars Forum will be held next week on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Why should you come hear students present their work?

Undergraduate Scholars Forum If you are an IUP faculty member, attending the USF will give you the opportunity to:

  • See the high-quality work that undergraduate students are doing on our campus across a variety of disciplines.
  • Support students in their efforts to produce scholarly work.
  • Give students an audience. Ask them questions that will help them learn to verbally discuss their work.
  • Help students think more deeply about their work by offering ideas from within or outside of their discipline.
  • Get ideas for the kinds of scholarship that your students could engage in.
  • Support your faculty colleagues who have mentored students to present their work.

If you are an IUP student, attending the USF will give you the opportunity to:

  • See scholarly work in your own discipline.
  • Learn about how to present your work at conferences.
  • See what a scholarly conference looks like.
  • Support your friends who are presenting.
  • Get ideas for the kinds of scholarly work you could do in the future.
  • Satisify a class requirement (attendance vouchers will be available).

There are a few ways to see what is available at the USF. You can view titles and times for presentations from your discipline or department. You can also access the USF 2013 program document, which outlines the entire day.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 2, 2013! We look forward to seeing you there.
