Volunteers Wanted for Undergraduate Research Opportunities Conference: UNM Newsroom


Directory Undergraduate Research Opportunities Conference (UROC) is taking place virtually and volunteers can register now to help review documents.

UROC will be held on April 15, 2021. It offers undergraduate researchers the opportunity to gain experience by presenting and answering questions about their research. Projects can originate from the classroom or independent learning, but must introduce undergraduate research to the UNM and ABQ communities.

“UROC accepts presentations from students at all stages and in all disciplines, from beginners to advanced research students,” said Kiyoko Simmons, UROC Co-Chair and Head of Fellowships and Outreach for UNM Specialized College. “The UROC evaluators played an essential role for the student presenters. Feedback and feedback from the reviewers helped undergraduate students to further develop their research projects and improve their presentation skills.

This year there are approximately 90 abstract submissions, each of which should be read and rated. The organizers are asking the campus community to volunteer to assess and provide feedback to students. There is a particular need for reviewers for poster and oral presentations.

Volunteer activities include:

  • Review 3 or 6 pre-recorded oral presentations and provide feedback using the UROC evaluation form between April 15 and April 20
  • Review 3 or 6 uploaded posters, participate in Zoom Live Q&A on UROC day (April 15) and complete the UROC evaluation form by April 20
  • Review up to 10 pre-recorded UROC180 presentations and complete the UROC assessment form between April 15-20
