Congratulations to Associate Professor Maria Horne and the Fall 2018 Arthur Miller class. Theatre & Dance is excited to announce that four UB Students have been selected to present at the 2019 NCUR National Conferences on Undergraduate Research, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of student scholars from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum.
