Annual Research Forum
Established during the fall of 1987, the Annual Research Forum is an outgrowth of the Center from which it originated. It is an intricate part of the results of having research on the UAPB Campus.

Also, it provides both students and faculty from any discipline taught on campus an occasion to receive the proper recognition for excellence in research.
