The 2014 National CAA Undergraduate Research Conference will be held at Towson University on April 11-13. This year marks the 12th anniversary of the establishment of the Colonial Academic Alliance (CAA), which includes: The College of Charleston, College of William & Mary, Drexel University, Elon University, Hofstra University, James Madison University, Northeastern University, Towson University, University of Delaware, and University of North Carolina-Wilmington.

The conference will feature special events to celebrate CAA's shared mission of promoting academic excellence.

This is an opportunity for undergraduate students to present the results of their research, service and scholarship from a broad range of disciplines to an audience of fellow researchers (students, faculty and administrators). The conference is a great opportunity for students and faculty from across member institutions to get involved in CAA's active community of researchers and scholars.
