The Celebration of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity at Hope College is an annual opportunity for student-faculty collaboration. Students complete research projects under the guidance of a faculty member, which is then presented at the Celebration. For more information, please visit the Celebration of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity website.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the 19th annual Celebration of Research and Creative Activity was hosted remotely on April 17, 2020. Some of the posters on this website were not presented at the online event, but were still made available by students and faculty mentors.
Note: Posters are only available for download when they have been approved by faculty mentors and provided by students. If a poster is not present in the repository it will not be available.
