Please consider volunteering to serve as a moderator for the 30th Undergraduate Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities Conference.
The Annual Undergraduate Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities Conference depends on the expertise and participation of UC Davis faculty members to serve as moderators. Moderators volunteer their time to enrich the experience of over 700 undergraduate student presenters. The 30th annual conference will take place on Friday, April 26th and Saturday, April 27th, 2019. We expect more than 4,000 attendees at the conference.

The Poster Sessions will take place on Friday, April 26th from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the ARC Pavilion. Each moderator is responsible for just one of the hour-long sessions (unless you opt for more than one session). During the session, the moderator is assigned five student posters related to their discipline and visits each to hear the presentation, ask questions, and present a certificate to the student.

The Arts and Design Exhibit runs concurrently to the Poster Sessions on Friday, April 26th from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the ARC Pavilion. Each moderator for the Arts and Design Exhibit will be assigned no more than five students. We ask that the moderator visit each student’s installation, interact with the student, ask questions, and present them with their certificate of participation. Moderating duties should take less than one hour and can happen at any time between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Oral moderators are expected to welcome the guests, introduce student presenters, ask questions, keep the session running on time, and present the student presenters with their certificate.
If you volunteer to moderate more than one type of session, you will be assigned to a session based on the greatest conference needs.
