18th Annual Student Conference
Friday, April 23, 2021
Dear Friends, Colleagues, Students, and Families,
Welcome to the 18th Annual Student Conference at the University at Albany. The Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Engagement (CURCE) is pleased to showcase the research, scholarship, and creative works of 75 students through 61 presentations.
Today, you will be able to view the works of our student researchers who have worked with faculty from the University at Albany to engage in research related to the COVID-19 pandemic, social justice, community activism, sustainability, equity and inclusion, environmental science, psychology, and many more. The efforts of the students and faculty are exceptional, and highlight the adaptability, flexibility and efforts made since 2020 to continue our priorities as a R-1 Research University to engage and support students in our research culture – whether in person or remotely.
I extend my hearty congratulations to the 30 students who this week were named recipients of the $15,000 in funding through CURCE this semester, and the 24 students selected as recipients of the 2021 Presidential Award for Undergraduate Research. Coming together today, while at a distance and remotely, we celebrate your accomplishments this year!
