URS A-frame poster

Undergraduate Research Symposium

The URS was conceived of and is hosted by the Honors College Student Ambassadors, who believe in the importance of sharing undergraduate research in a multi-disciplinary environment. It was created to:

  • Provide a forum for students to present their research to faculty and other students
  • Give students the opportunity to practice public speaking to prepare for future conferences
  • Give students the chance to network with other students and faculty
  • Help students grow as emerging professionals in their fields of study

To achieve these ends, the URS is a congenial, positive, professional environment, and faculty volunteers serve as moderators to provide informal yet constructive feedback to everyone who presents. The URS will take place on:

 Saturday, April 27, 2019

8 AM to 5 PM

CHSS Building & Lowman Student Center
