Abington College Undergraduate Research Activities (ACURA)

It is the mission of ACURA to develop students who are critical thinkers and creative scholars by engagement in scientific experimentation, inquiry-based research, and exploration of the arts and humanities through a two- to three-semester research experience with our community of teacher-scholars.

The ACURA Poster Fair is on Wednesday, April 17 from 11:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
