2019 Fall Symposium
November 19, 3-6pm
The Office of Undergraduate Research is issuing a call for abstracts for its Fall 2019 Symposium. The winners of the symposium will be fully supported in their paper/performance submission to the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and their travel to the conference covered by OUR.
Abstracts may be submitted for traditional research in any field, composition or performance in music or theatre, and visual art.
Students should submit a 300-word abstract and letter of support from a faculty mentor to OUR@unco.edu by 5pm Friday, October 9.
A committee of faculty and staff will select 8 or 9 abstracts for full presentation at the fall symposium, taking place in mid November. Of those presenting, three will be chosen as winners, and will submit their papers/presentations to NCUR for consideration.
Experience hands-on-history! Dearfield Day – Sat. October 19th, 2019
In past Dearfield Days, we have gathered to learn about the town and its dedicated
African-American residents and pioneers of the Dearfield Farm Colony (1910-1930).
This year we begin a planned decade of progressive steps to protect its remaining
historic buildings from vandalism and decay, with plans to some-day restore them to
their original conditions.
Join us in our "hands-on-history" experience in preserving the Dearfield heritage. Lunch will be provided.
