For families who are coming to FamFest on April 29th, we invite you to come visit undergraduate Research at PURCC.

The Pacific Undergraduate Research Conference (PURC) was started in 2001 as a way to highlight and celebrate the outstanding research being done by undergraduates at Pacific. The range of disciplines participating has increased each year. In 2005, in an effort to recognize and celebrate students engaged in a broader range of scholarly activities, the conference was renamed the Pacific Undergraduate Research and Creativity Conference (PURCC).
