Honors Student Research Conferences

The RCC Honors Program students have the opportunity to participate in two conferences each academic year.

 RCCD Honors Program Student Research Conference

In the fall, our students can attend and present at the  on campus.  This event is held every fall on the Friday before Thanksgiving.  Typically, we have about thirty students presenting across 10 individual panels spread over three session times.  There is also a catered lunch where participants, faculty, and guests can hang out together and talk about the panels.  (Click on the image at right to see the full-size call-for-papers document.)
 
Timeline:
  • August/September: Students prepare their abstracts for submission
  • End of September: Students submit 250-word abstracts to their honors coordinators for consideration (faculty mentor approval required)
  • Early October: Abstracts are scored/ranked by RCCD honors faculty
  • Late October: Students are notified by the Honors Program Student Coordinator (Prof. Dan Hogan) if they have been accepted
  • Late October/November: Students attend at least one mandatory practice session at RCC as part of their preparation for their conference presentation (students may attend as many practice sessions as they wish)
  • Late November: : Students have a wonderful experience sharing their scholarship and ideas among family, friends, classmates, and faculty
 
The HTCC Building Bridges Conference
hosted by UC Irvine
In the spring, typically at the end of March or the beginning of May, the Honors Transfer Council of California organizes and presents its Building Bridges Honors Student Research Conference on the campus of U.C. Irvine.  This conference features about 300 honors students from over 30 community colleges all across Southern California.  (Yes, this is an event exclusively for community college students!)  Like our local RCCD conference, this is an all day affair with a variety of student panels (3-4 students presenting in each) in three formats: individual presentations, group presentations (small and large), and poster presentations. 
 
Timeline:
  • November: Students prepare their abstracts for submission
  • December: Students submit 250-word abstracts to their honors coordinators for consideration (faculty mentor approval required)
  • Early January: Abstracts are scored/ranked by HTCC faculty members
  • Late January: Students are notified by the conference organizers if they have been accepted, waitlisted, or denied
  • February/March: Students attend at least one mandatory practice session at RCC as part of their preparation for their conference presentation (students may attend as many practice sessions as they wish)
  • April: Students have an amazing experience presenting their hard work at a regional conference among their academic peers from across the state.
