Since the first annual meeting in 1981, the MAUSRC has provided undergraduate students a supportive setting in which to present the results of their research projects to their peers and faculty members from colleges and universities across the region. The conference welcomes students from a range of social scientific disciplines and programs including, but not limited to: Sociology, Anthropology, Gender Studies, Education, Criminology, Social Work, Economics, and Psychology.
Students may present their research in either a traditional panel setting or in a limited number of poster sessions. For panel sessions, students should expect to prepare a 10-15 minute oral presentation for an audience of students and faculty. The use of PowerPoint or other applications are welcome (but not required). Students should come prepared with their presentations on a USB flash drive (having a secondary method of cloud storage or email backup for the presentation is also advised). Villanova University will provide laptops and projectors in all conference rooms. For poster sessions, students should create and set up a posterboard highlighting their research results and be prepared to answer questions posed by students and faculty.
Students from colleges and universities across the Mid-Atlantic region are invited to participate. There is NO registration fee for the conference, however, all students need to register by completing this brief online submission form no later than MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2013. NOTE: If you are presenting with another student, please submit ONE registration form for each team.
