Twice yearly the Office of Undergraduate Research sponsors the Undergraduate Research Symposium. Students in all academic departments, programs and schools are encouraged to present their original research. In addition to poster sessions, the symposium program includes a keynote address, selected student talks, performances and demonstrations of projects.

Undergraduate Research Symposium Posters contains research posters and abstracts from current and past symposiums.

Students who have participated in the Undergraduate Research Symposium should review the Policies before submitting their posters through the Submit Research link located under the Author Corner in the left sidebar. Students must receive permission from their mentors first to verify that the materials/data can be made publicly available.
