The Ohio Undergraduate Psychology Research Conference Consortium is a system of institutions that vigorously encourage and support social science research by undergraduate students. Initiated by John Carroll University in 1987 by Dr. Janet Larsen, OUPRC provides students who are interested in graduate level study, or who are interested in careers in research settings, with the opportunity to present their work to a supportive and constructively critical group of faculty and students.
The conference, a “safe haven” for scholars-in-training to share their research, allows all students who submit to present and is traditionally held in mid-April, just before the Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA) conference and provides excellent practice for students continuing on to MPA. OUPRC Host sites are selected on a rotating basis from member institutions.
M.P.A. will begin Thursday, April 23, 2020. The ECSC conference will be March 21, 2020. The judged student poster session at the Ohio Psychological Association conference will be Friday, April 26th in Columbus. The 34th annual OUPRC will be held at Lorain Community College on Saturday, April 4, 2020.
