History

The Student Conference on Research and Creative Arts at the University of Houston-Clear Lake began in 1994 under the direction of psychology instructors Dr. Kyna Shelly and Michael Hunt. Understanding that their students who had participated in research projects were hesitant to attend professional conferences, they agreed that a co-curricular activity would provide students an opportunity to present their original work in a professional format and help prepare them for their academic and professional careers.

The first conference consisted of 31 presentations by UHCL students and each year it has grown. Now an annual event, the Conference includes out-of-state and international participants.

The event is an interdisciplinary conference with students from fields such as Biology, Physics, Computer Science, Psychology, Sociology, Education, Fine Arts, and Creative Writing. Included were oral sessions, poster sessions, symposia, and a standing-room-only poetry session held in coffee-house fashion.
