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 contains research posters and abstracts from past symposiums.

Students who have participated in the Undergraduate Research Symposium, may submit their posters here, or click here for more information under the Author Corner.
