Omicron Delta Epsilon Undergraduate Conference

Undergraduate research is playing a larger role at highly selective colleges and universities. Many of your students engage in independent research and we have a forum for them to share their experiences and results. The 31st Annual Business and Economics Undergraduate Research Conference at Ursinus College is a great opportunity for your students to present their research endeavors to other motivated peers.
