At the Core highlights the value of liberal arts core courses and our high value on mentoring and undergraduate research. They are at the core of the work we do in University College.

At the Core is proudly sponsored by the Department of General Education and funded by the generosity of the Crider Endowment and University College. We hope you will join us for this year's conference on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, from 8 AM - 3 PM in the Campus Center

Call for Submissions

The At the Core Workgroup seeks proposals from University College faculty and staff who wish to sponsor student presentations, panels, projects, and individual essays that showcase excellent student work.

Rather than creating a new assignment, faculty and staff can adapt one of their existing assignments to enable students to present their work.

Participating students will have opportunities to:

  • Present on a Panel with Peers
  • Exhibit Their Work
  • Join an Academic Dialogue
  • Practice Public Speaking Skills
  • Add to Their Resumes
  • Earn Awards

Deadline for Registration: March 31, 2024 | 5 PM
