Utah Research on Capitol Hill
Visit the Utah Research on Capitol Hill
Each January, Utah State University and the University of Utah join together as the state’s two public research universities to demonstrate the value of research to an undergraduate education to legislators with a showing of research projects and products in Salt Lake City at the State Capitol. Originated by Utah State in 2001, this event is reserved for students whose home residence is Utah. Parents are invited to this day as well as members of the Board of Regents and USU’s Board of Trustees.
Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research
UCUR is designed to showcase the best undergraduate work from students all over the state. Undergraduates from all disciplines are invited to apply for the conference, which provides an excellent opportunity to students to present their work in a scholarly setting to students, faculty, field specialists and community members.
Presentations may include both visual and oral displays of work in all academic disciplines, from art history to molecular biology.
National Conference on Undergraduate Research
The National Conference on Undergraduate Research is the largest conference of its kind in the United States. Annually some 2,000 participants — largely students but some faculty members — gather to share their work from all disciplines. Participation in this three to four-day event is funded through the Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
To qualify, students must note the USU undergraduate research contact when submitting. For more information, visit www.ncur.org.
Student Research Symposium
Visit the Student Research Symposium
Each spring, students are invited to participate in the campus celebration of research, scholarship, and creative activity. Research Week is an opportunity for faculty and students showcase their research projects. The Student Student Research Symposium celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Various departments also host in-house symposia, panels and poster sessions.
Council on Undergraduate Research Posters on the Hill
Each spring the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts an annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event helps members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.
