The conference is designed to highlight the quality undergraduate research produced on the Whittier campus and will provide students an opportunity to present original work completed during Summer 2015 and the 2015-16 academic year. For many students, participation in the URSCA presentation day represents the culmination of their senior project work and satisfies a capstone experience requirement Whittier calls Communication IV in Whittier's liberal education program.
