The Undergraduate Research Writing Conference (URWC) is an annual event that showcases outstanding work completed by students across 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, and the process of selection is highly competitive.
Selected students usually have the opportunity to present their work in a setting modeled on an academic conference, and the event provides an interdisciplinary platform for sharing ideas and networking in a professional environment.

This year, the URWC team has the pleasure of for the first time, transforming the conference into a virtual experience.
