The annual Theodore Clevenger Undergraduate Honors Conference (UHC) provides an opportunity for outstanding undergraduate students and faculty to discuss current projects and ideas about future communication research.
The goals of the UHC include supporting undergraduate scholarship, networking and exchanging ideas with other communication scholars, and exploring opportunities for graduate study.
Undergraduate students are welcome to submit papers for the UHC on any topic relevant to the study of human communication. The topics of papers presented also have been diverse, including rhetorical, social science, humanistic, critical, and performance-oriented approaches to the study of communication.
