Undergraduate Research Symposium

The 2022 Undergraduate Research Symposium took place on Tuesday, April 12th.

Overview

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for students to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a broad audience. It includes projects from all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a range of topics.

How to Participate

All UVA undergraduates involved in research and creative inquiry are welcome to register to present at this year's symposium. Please visit the Information for Students tab to learn more about the abstract submission process and presentation formats. 

Students, faculty, staff, and guests are welcome to attend the Symposium to learn about the research and creative projects being done by current undergraduates. Browse the Symposium Schedule ahead of time (available online now using the link below) and join us on April 12th in Newcomb Hall as your schedule allows! 

NB: We ask that attendees visiting Concurrent Oral Presentations plan to attend for the duration of the session to minimize disruption to our student presenters. 

What to Expect

We are excited to announce that in 2022 we plan to return to an in-person format for this event! Students present their work as posters or oral presentations. Presenters can check in at the registration table in front of the Newcomb Hall Ballroom prior to their session, where volunteers will also be available to direct guests and answer questions about the event throughout the day. At 5 pm we will hold a reception and keynote address celebrating the accomplishments of all of our researchers in the Newcomb Ballroom, all are welcome to attend
