The Importance of Presenting Research for Students

Local conferences for student research are an excellent opportunity for student-researchers to:

  • Share their latest research findings and impacts with other students, faculty, and researchers. 
  • Practice public speaking skills and professional communication which is an important skill in any job market. 
  • Learning about similar research being conducted in their field and connecting with other student-researchers interested in similar topics.

See below for local conferences to share your research at! If you would like help putting together a presentation of your research or have any questions about local research conferences, contact the Center for Student Research at csr@uccs.edu
