Calvin University is pleased to host the 2023 Michigan Undergraduate Psychology Research Conference (MUPRC) on April 15, 2023 at the School of Business.

The conference provides a unique opportunity for psychology students to present original research. Student-focused conferences such as MUPRC can be an extremely valuable experience, giving students an audience for their ideas, a way to focus their study results and an opportunity to rehearse public presentations.


Nate Ward, Associate Professor, Tufts University

Dr. Ward's research is focused on understanding and improving the ability to manage multiple streams of information (i.e., multitasking) both in the lab and in real-world settings.
