Congratulations to the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences (CEHHS) student winners at the 21st Annual Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA). Out of 16 poster presentations, six from CEHHS won awards.
The Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA) is an annual event that showcases research and creative activities by currently enrolled undergraduate students in collaboration with a University of Tennessee, Knoxville faculty mentor. Entries can be individual or group projects and are judged by a panel of UT faculty members and industry partners. The Office of Undergraduate Research coordinates this unique competition to encourage, support, and reward undergraduate participation in the campus research enterprise. An added value is the development of faculty mentoring relationships.
