The HBCU-UP National Research Conference highlights undergraduate student research and institutional strategies to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and research at HBCUs. The National Science Foundation (NSF) HBCU-UP Program recognizes and supports the important role that HBCUs play in increasing the numbers of underrepresented ethnic minorities that are well prepared for participation and leadership at every level of education and research in STEM.
