The Paideia Conference is CNU's annual conference dedicated to fostering undergraduate and graduate research in liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies.  Conferences provide a valuable venue to share academic information and current research among peers. Researchers who present at the Paideia Conference are eligible for the Excellence in Undergraduate Research Awards. 

This year's Conference Program featured a record number of presentations, posters, and performances.

Each year the Paideia Conference invites a CNU graduate back to campus to speak to conference attendees about the undergraduate research experience and how it has informed their post-CNU career.
