SOURCE is an annual, university-wide conference that provides Central Washington University students the opportunity to present their mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities in a juried environment. SOURCE is hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research but welcomes presentations from all members of the campus community—including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff, and campus-affiliated K-12 students. SOURCE fosters teaching and mentoring at Central Washington University, promotes the significance of research, scholarship, and creative activities, engages a range of campus and community stakeholders, and enhances the professional skills of our students.

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and the SOURCE Committee are partnering with the Student Opportunity Center (SOC) to host SOURCE 2020 as an online event. 

Asynchronous video presentations will make up the sessions for all presentation types and disciplines now that we are in a digital format. Sessions will be organized by type of presentation and discipline. The event webpage will be password protected, but all videos will be available to the CWU community. Therefore, it’s important that you talk with your faculty mentor to ensure that your video includes information that you have permission to share. They may have advice for you as you create your presentation, and they should approve your finished presentation before you upload it.

Judges and others from the campus community who want to virtually attend sessions can do so at any time during the 7-day event, and they can post comments and questions for presenters. Student presenters are encouraged to address questions and comments.
