URCAD Pin

Title

URCAD Pin

Description

The first Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day (URCAD) was held in 1997. The event showcases both original research and creative works by students, who have the opportunity to present through posters, oral presentations, performances, film, and more. URCAD emphasizes collaboration between students and mentors, and therefore only accepts projects that have been supported by a faculty mentor at UMBC. There are also Undergraduate Research Awards available, giving selected students up to $1,500 to complete their research. The annual URCAD event is usually held during the third or fourth week of April.

Traditionally, both presenters and attendees are given a metal URCAD pin to wear throughout the day.
