Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Undergraduate Research Symposium will take place virtually this year. Presentations will be available online beginning April 16th, and synchronous sessions will take place from April 21st – 22nd.


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

If you are a student interested in presenting at the symposium, please visit the Information for Students page.

For those wishing to attend the symposium, a link will be made available at the top of this page to take you to the presentation site on April 16th, 2021. This site will include both the presentations and detailed information on live sessions, including which presenters will be in each session and how to join via Zoom.

What to Expect

We are using iPosterSessions to hold this event virtually this year. iPosters are interactive online presentations reminiscent of the style of a research poster. To get the most out of your experience at the symposium we recommend you spend time browsing the posters early in the week and noting session times which you are interested in attending.

Live sessions will take the style of a panel discussion with 4 student presenters from a common field taking questions from attendees about their research. Each iPoster will have information on when the student presenter(s) will participate in a live session, as well as how to attend via Zoom. Attendees interested in browsing live sessions based on time and academic category will be able to do so using a Live Sessions webpage within the symposium website beginning April 16th.

Schedule at a Glance

Please visit the symposium website on or after April 16th to find out when a particular presenter will be participating in a live Q&A panel discussion. An overview of when Live Sessions will be scheduled can be found below.
