University Research Day Abstracts due date extended

There is still time! The deadline for submitting your abstract for University Research Day has been extended to February 3rd.

University Research Day

University Research Day (URD) at The Catholic University of America is a day when students, faculty and staff come together to celebrate, share and learn about the innovative and exciting research taking place at the University.

URD showcases the work of hundreds of students, faculty, and staff. This year, URD will take place on April 7, 2022.

We are pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts. Abstracts will be due February 3, 2022.

We would like to encourage ALL members of the Catholic University community to submit abstracts. This includes both campus-based students, staff and faculty, and those at other locations (e.g. Rome campus, online programs).

URD 2022 includes opportunities for oral presentations, posters and interactive research demonstrations (e.g. architectural model, short dramatic performance, etc.). Research includes anything that falls under “scholarly work”; for example, a project you worked on with a faculty member, a recent presentation you gave at a professional meeting, scholarly paper, dramatic or musical performance, or display of art, etc.

At URD, participants present their scholarship in a way that ensures engagement with everyone — even those unfamiliar with the subject matter.

Abstracts should reflect this and be written with clear, non-technical language that is geared toward ALL people. Examples of abstracts are available on the URD Abstract Submissions page. Members of the URD Planning Committee judge the submitted abstracts and selected presenters will be notified by email in March.

Look for more information on the URD website. You will find important dates, the link to the abstract application form, presentation formats and more. Follow us on social media at #CUatResearchDay.

Questions? Reach out to us at or to any of the current URD committee members.

Submit your abstract by February 3, 2022 at 5 p.m.

Thank you. We look forward to another exciting University Research Day!

–Kevin Gunn, Member, 2022 University Research Day Committee
