This conference draws 400-500 scholars from colleges and universities (including faculty, administrators, graduate students, and undergraduate students with faculty sponsors), research institutes, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and businesses across Michigan, the nation, and a few foreign countries. Participants at the conference will exchange updates on current research from their own fields and have the rare opportunity to interact with colleagues from a wide range of other fields.
A couple of special features of the conference are publication of abstracts of all papers presented at the conference in our quarterly, academic journal the Michigan Academician. Also, two awards are offered for outstanding papers: the Cohn Prize in Law and Public Policy, and the Ronald O. Kapp Undergraduate Award.
