Read about the 2021 URWC in The Daily Targum:

2021 URWC: A conference where students present exceptional research projects completed in Writing Program courses at Rutgers University, transformed into a virtual celebration in a time of quarantine.

The Undergraduate Research Writing Conference (URWC) is an annual event that showcases outstanding work completed by students across the disciplines at Rutgers University. Students who earned A's in any of the Writing Program's research writing courses are invited to submit their papers for consideration. After a highly competitive selection process, presenters are given the opportunity to share their work in an academic conference setting. The 2021 URWC presents 9 virtual Panels as well as several themed Roundtables and a Poster Fair.

The 9 Panels are:

  • The Arts: Narration & Identity
  • Feminism Today
  • Political & Ideological Struggles in the U.S.
  • Studies in Asia, Africa, and Latin America
  • Improving Education
  • Urban Planning & Environmental Justice
  • Advances in Science and their Uses
  • Issues in Mental Health and Psychology
  • Focus on Healthcare & Justice

Thank You 2021 Interns

The 2021 URWC would not have been possible without the assistance of our 16 Interns. These exceptional students went above and beyond, giving countless hours to the reading, discussion and vetting of papers, prepping presenters, creating and implementing the promotional campaign, in addition to the numerous other tasks and responsibilities involved in planning the Conference.
