About

The UO Undergraduate Research Symposium celebrates the remarkable contributions our undergraduates make to research and other creative work in a wide range of disciplines.

The symposium, co-chaired by Kevin Hatfield and Josh Snodgrass, aspires to engage undergraduates in the research mission of the University of Oregon by supporting the creation and dissemination of knowledge, while inspiring younger undergraduates to seek out research opportunities and removing barriers to interdisciplinary education and discourse.

The symposium enables undergraduates to share their ideas, discoveries, and artistic expression with the campus and local community. The symposium invites students to select their preferred style of presentation to best accommodate their projects. Traditionally held in the EMU in the mode of an academic conference, the symposium will include poster sessions, oral presentations and exhibition space for performing and fine arts.

In response to Covid-19 the Symposium has shifted to a virtual event in 2020.

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is sponsored by the Division of Undergraduate Education and Student Success, the Center for Undergraduate Research and Engagement (CURE), the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation, University Housing, the Robert D. Clark Honors College, the UO Libraries, the TRIO McNair Scholars Program, and Division of Student Life.
