Undergraduate Research


Paideia (pi DAY ah) is the classical Greek education of liberal learning, which was believed to develop the intellectual, moral and aesthetic capacities.

This annual conference is dedicated to fostering undergraduate and graduate research in liberal arts, sciences and professional studies. The conference provides a valuable venue to share academic information and current research among peers.

The 19th annual Paideia Conference will be held virtually the week of April 12, 2021.  The keynote speaker this year will be forensic anthropologist and novelist (Bones) Dr. Kathy Reichs.
