Symposium participants discussing their projects at poster session

The Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creativity provides ambitious, intellectually motivated undergraduate students the opportunity to present and defend their original research or creative work among peers, faculty, family, and friends. Through its emphasis on original research and creative work, the Symposium seeks to inspire undergraduate students to analyze, critique, and engage with the world around them. We welcome research or creative work from every discipline. Symposium participation is on a competitive basis.
