The Eighth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium 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 acknowledges 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 featured a Discussion Panel titled “Getting Involved in Research as a Transfer Student.”

In 2018, we introduced a new event to our lineup--a Kick-Off Conversation that took place the evening before the Symposium. We featured Paul Peppis--Professor of English and Director of the Oregon Humanities Center--who provided remarks and led a discussion on the topic, "Humanities Research Matters."
