Ninth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium Thursday, May 16, 2019
The Eighth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium will hosted 382 undergraduates engaged in original research, creative work, and community-based projects from over 71 majors, 13 minors, and eight colleges in the Erb Memorial Union for a day of oral and poster presentations, creative work sessions, Academic Residential Community presentations and a new Data Stories presentation format! The Undergraduate Research Symposium also wishes to acknowledge the 260 faculty mentors who sponsored the presenters throughout their research and presentation process.
The 2018 Program includes the Symposium agenda; Concurrent Sessions schedules for the oral, creative work, data stories, and Academic Residential Communities (ARC) presentations; a venue map for poster locations; list of presentation abstracts with presenters information; presenter and faculty mentor name lists; and statistics and funding sources!
A new collaboration with Lane Community College faculty and students hosting a Discussion Panel titled “Getting Involved in Research as a Transfer Student” from 3:35 to 4:45pm in the Swindells Room.
This year we introduce a new event to our lineup--a Kick-Off Conversation that takes place the evening before the Symposium. This year we feature Paul Peppis--Professor of English and Director of the Oregon Humanities Center--who will provide remarks and lead a discussion on the topic, "Humanities Research Matters". That event will take place on Wednesday, May 16 at 4 pm in the Knight Browsing Room.
By participating you will have the opportunity to display your work to faculty and students and have an experience similar to participating in a research conference! People are friendly and want to hear about your research. It's fun too!
