DePauw University’s National Undergraduate Honors Conference is designed to encourage undergraduate scholarship and facilitate the interaction between undergraduates and major scholars in communication and theatre.
This is a working conference emphasizing a mentoring relationship with our distinguished visiting professors. Students collaborate with guest professors in small-group seminars designed to refine and extend their ideas. This is an excellent opportunity for students thinking about graduate or professional education beyond their undergraduate experience.
Housing (Thursday to Saturday), meals, and conference materials will be provided for each participant. Cost of transportation to and from the conference must be borne by the participant. Free transportation will be provided from the Indianapolis airport to DePauw University. There will be a conference registration fee of $150.00 per participant.
