14th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

Saturday, April 24th, 2021


Mission Statement

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.

Event Information - 

The 14th Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held in an asynchronous virtual format. The conference will be opened on April 24, 2020 at 9:00 AM with a welcome message and a keynote address.

Please plan to view the submissions through the portal on this website.

Remember to invite your faculty advisor, family, and friends. They can join us but must register so we can account for their event materials. Register them by using the REGISTRATION INFORMATION button above.
