Welcome to the URWC 2021!  Our conference showcases a selection of the extraordinary undergraduate projects prepared for the Writing Program’s research writing classes during 2020, our year of quarantine. We think you will enjoy our student-led team’s highly competitive selection and wish to wholeheartedly applaud all work done by the program’s students and faculty as beacons that point us toward the future in this dark and unsteady time.

Welcome from Professor Lynda Dexheimer
