The 23rd Annual
Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day
Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Come to Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day (URCAD) to see original work by UMBC students in fields from Biology to Dance, Psychology to Visual Arts. This day-long symposium features students sharing the results of their mentored research, scholarship, and creative work. Presentations take the form of original dances, video, artistic installations, sculpture, oral presentations, and posters. Attend and be inspired by what these young professionals are already producing and contributing to their fields.

Our guest speaker is Dr. Eric Anthony Grollman, who is a Black queer non-binary intellectual activist (they/them/theirs) and Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Richmond.

Dr. Grollman began at UMBC as a Meyerhoff Scholar majoring in math before leaving the program to double major in sociology and psychology, and pursue a certificate in gender and women’s studies. In promoting social justice in and through sociology, they founded the blog ConditionallyAccepted.com (a weekly career advice column for marginalized academics on Inside Higher Ed).
