Research and Creative Activity Day 2020 is canceled.

After much discussion over the past week, the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity (URSA) has decided to cancel UAF Research and Creative Activity Day which was scheduled for Tuesday, April 07. This was not an easy decision given all of the hard work that our undergraduate students and their mentors have put into their projects over this past academic year. While this annual showcase of research and creative endeavors that our undergraduate students and their mentors have been involved in has always been one of the highlights of each academic year, circumstances associated with COVID-19 and the health of our students, staff, faculty, administration, and guests preempt such a gathering. We know that this is likely a disappointing decision for many of you, and we appreciate your understanding.  Thank you for a great year, we look forward to seeing you at Research and Creative Activity Day in 2021.
