A tradition of excellence...then, now and always.
Since 1953, the Atlantic Coast Conference has been home to universities renowned not only for athletic prowess, but also for some of the nation's finest academic achievements. The twelve ACC universities embody a rich tradition of excellence in undergraduate scholarship. The First Annual ACC Meeting of the Minds, hosted by Clemson University, is a two-day event to showcase the results of undergraduate student research projects. It is a unique opportunity for students from a variety of disciplinary and institutional backgrounds to come together as both exhibitors and audience with the goal of highlighting undergraduate research excellence from across the ACC. photos of students participating in various research

Clemson University is proud to host the first annual ACC Meeting of the Minds conference on Advancing Under-graduate Research Excellence. We welcome the active participation of students and faculty from all of our sister schools in the ACC, and we look forward to participating when the University of Virginia hosts in 2007.

Research – which we call “creative inquiry” at Clemson –
is an increasingly vital component of the undergraduate experience across the entire range of disciplines. In a world of rapid change, all of our graduates must be both educated and “self-educating.”

Discovery-oriented and project-oriented approaches to learning prepare students for a lifetime of inquiry and growth. They learn teamwork and valuable life skills – problem-solving, critical thinking and communication.

This conference is also a unique opportunity for the ACC to come together as a conference at an event focused solely on student academic achievement. I look forward to being dazzled by the work our undergraduate students will present.

Please join us in April 2006 for Meeting of the Minds.

James Barker, FAIA
