The Hunter Student Research Conference (HSRC) is an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to share their research while gaining valuable experience proposing, preparing, and presenting their work in a supportive environment.
For over a decade, the student research conference at the School of Education and Human Development has provided an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their innovative research. The one-day event is held in the late spring and includes poster sessions, paper sessions, workshops, panels, and a keynote speaker. It is organized for students mostly by students (with the support of a faculty liaison and staff in the Dean’s Office), so it is also an opportunity for students to gain experience designing, planning, and running an academic conference.
In 2020, the conference was renamed to honor the barrier-breaking alumna, Dr. Louise Stokes Hunter, Educ ‘53. Dr. Hunter was the first Black woman to graduate from the University of Virginia.
