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.

Renamed in 2020, the Hunter Student Research Conference honors the barrier-breaking alumna, Dr. Louise Stokes Hunter, Educ ‘53. Dr. Hunter was the first Black woman to graduate from the University of Virginia.

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.
