Tri-State Undergraduate Research Psychology Conference


Tri-State Logo30th Annual Tri-State Undergraduate Psychology Conference 

Saturday, November 13, 2021

The Tri-State Conference is an annual symposium that focuses on research conducted by undergraduates in collaboration with their faculty mentors. It is hosted by a consortium of four colleges from Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin on a rotating basis and is generally attended by 15-20 colleges from those three states and Minnesota. While research is a major focus, the conference also offers programming on careers and graduate training in psychology, a graduate school fair featuring many graduate programs from the Tri-state area and a keynote speaker who discusses their own research on contemporary psychology-related issues.
