About

The University of Pittsburgh is proud to host the 9th Annual ACC Meeting of the Minds event. Taking place April 3-5, 2014 and funded in part by revenue from athletic events, the annual conference focuses on undergraduate research and scholarship at the 15 ACC member schools and represents the power and synergy that can exist between athletics and academics.

Undergraduate students at all ACC universities are involved in numerous projects, which provide unique contributions to research and creativity in a variety of fields. The annual ACC Meeting of the Minds Conference has become an opportunity for universities in the ACC to highlight the diversity of research being conducted by undergraduates and for students to share their work with peers across the ACC.
