Four economics students from the class of 2017 were invited to present at the conference last year. They found the experience incredibly valuable, and we're eager to continue representing PLU at the National Conference of Undergraduate Research.
This is a great opportunity to network with peers, career professionals, and academic scholars. The conference also hosts several influential leaders- from business executives to NASA scientists- to provide valuable insight from their experiences. Presenting at this conference is an incredible academic and professional accomplishment that will deepen our vocational aspirations.
This year the conference will be hosted by the University of Central Oklahoma in Oklahoma City.

Our team is comprised of two students from PLU's Economics Department. We were part of the fall capstone where we each worked on a unique project, applying our economic understanding to an area of our interest. Each project had a different emphasis; Joel's focus was on opioid addiction and Mariah's considered financial asset preferences.
We're both looking forward to the opportunity to share our work with others at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. Please, join our team by supporting our campaign!
