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 23, 2022

8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Loman Student Center, Orange Ballroom
