Consistent with its commitment to academic freedom, UMBC does not restrict the topics of inquiry that can be accepted for URCAD, the conclusions that are reached in student work, or the representations chosen by the student and mentor for that work. With the approval of their mentors, students may apply to present any mentored research, scholarship, or creative work completed while they are UMBC undergraduates. A mentor-approved and committee-approved abstract describing the work and its intellectual context is required. Approval to present work at URCAD is given by the faculty of the URCAD committee.
