Beyond UBC

In addition to promoting student research on campus, ASRW faculty members encourage our students to take every opportunity to experience academic research and writing beyond UBC, such as by submitting

  • research proposals to undergraduate conferences, and
  • finished research projects to undergraduate journals.

We celebrate our students’ research achievements, wherever and whenever they occur.
