Sixth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium
The Sixth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium was honored to welcome the largest and most disciplinary diverse cohort of undergraduates to date—encompassing over 200 presenters representing 57 majors and seven colleges.
The 2016 Undergraduate Research Symposium Faculty Review Committee accepted 185 proposals after a rigorous abstract review process. Presenters—individually and in teams—shared their ideas, discoveries, research, and artistic expressions with the campus and local community through 97 poster exhibits, 60 oral presentations, and 8 creative work installations and performances. New categories for service learning and international research were spotlighted as well.
The Undergraduate Research Symposium also wishes to acknowledge the 213 faculty mentors who sponsored the presenters' proposals.
