The URSCA office plans and supports programming during both the academic year and the summer. Our largest events during the academic year are the URSCA Poster Session (Fall Semester) and the Richard J Cook – Teresa M Lahti Scholars Symposium (Spring Semester). In addition, the URSCA Office runs the Allegheny College Research Seminar Series (ACRoSS), an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of summer research projects developed by students and faculty at Allegheny College. In addition, the URSCA Office has panels and workshops on how to find and get involved in student-faculty collaborative work as well as Gator Day events.

Use the programming menu at the right to learn more about each of these events.

If you are interested in finding out more information about the above events, or if you have any questions related to research, scholarship, or creative activities on campus, email Dr. Matthew Venesky (, Director of URSCA.
