Student research conference (SRC)

This year’s virtual SRC will take place on Friday, March 18, 2022, from 10 a.m. – Noon

The Flint Student Research Conference (SRC) provides a unique opportunity for students at UM-Flint, Kettering University, and Mott Community College to gather for a day of sharing their faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities. Since 2011, this collaborative event has showcased multi-disciplinary research from the arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and applied sciences. On average, 50-60 students present the results of their scholarly and creative endeavors through oral or poster presentations or with live performances and demonstrations. Additionally, student presenters have the opportunity to have their manuscripts published in the annual conference proceedings. For questions or concerns, please visit SRC Frequently Asked Questions or send us an email,


We ask all attendees to register. To register, please click here. This includes presenters, faculty advisors, non-presenting students, family, friends, and volunteers.

Eligible student presenters must be undergraduate or graduate students at UM-Flint, Kettering University, or Mott Community College. Presenters will be asked to include the names and email addresses of all presenters in a group, the faculty sponsor, a project title, and an abstract of no more than 200 words describing the work to be presented. Missing or incomplete sections may result in proposals being rejected. Where a group project is involved, only one registration form needs to be completed.
