The Mission

The Spokane Intercollegiate Research Conference (SIRC) provides an opportunity for students from across majors and disciplines, to present their research and scholarship, receive meaningful feedback, and develop scholarly community. SIRC is a great opportunity for students at all levels of their academic career to gain practice speaking and presenting as well as experience a conference environment in a relaxed, friendly setting while learning about the wealth of research in our community.

About the Conference

SIRC will be hosted by Whitworth University in April of 2022.

SIRC is organized by Gonzaga University and Whitworth University, alternating between campuses each year. This celebration of primarily undergraduate research is open to all students in the Spokane area and costs nothing to attend.  Although the event primarily supports undergraduate research, we would love to provide a venue for all students in our community to celebrate their research as well.  We look forward to seeing you at SIRC!
