Students at COPLAC institutions have the opportunity to present the results of their undergraduate research at regional conferences where they can meet and discuss their work with peers and faculty members. Undergraduate research projects span the disciplines and afford students the prospect of intellectual engagement beyond the formal classroom setting. Outstanding projects are featured in COPLAC's online research journal Metamorphosis.

Many students at COPLAC continue their work at the graduate level, having been prepared for the world of scholarly engagement through a COPLAC commitment to hands-on research.
