We invite you to the first annual Conference for Undergraduate Research in Psychology (CURP) at IUPUC in Columbus, Indiana where undergraduate psychology students and their faculty mentors will come from across the region to share their research. 

Students are encouraged to submit conference proposals in all disciplines of psychology. Students and their mentors, professors, and guests are all welcome to this day-long conference at IUPUC.
