Present your Research

Poster Presentations

As a land-grant university, here at USU we don’t consider research projects to be complete until they have been disseminated to the public. One of the primary ways that researchers share their work is through academic presentations at symposia, conferences, or other events. These presentations give you valuable experience, practice in professional and research communication, and allow you to network with other students, researchers, and the broader public.

Undergraduate students have numerous opportunities to present at USU, state, and event national events specifically for undergraduate research and creative work. Each of the events below is open to all disciplines.

In addition, many professional conferences allow undergraduates to present. Talk to your research mentor to learn more about the best professional conferences in your field. If you are accepted to present at a professional conference, you may be eligible for Office of Research funding to help you cover your attendance expenses.


Publishing Opportunities

Alongside presenting, publication of research or creative work is a great way to share it with the public. Talk to your mentor about potential journals that may be a good fit for your project, and consider submitting to Curiosity: The Undergraduate Research Journal of Utah State University. You can also share any of your presentation materials (such as your poster, abstract, or slides) to Digital Commons! Both Curiosity and Digital Commons are completely open to the public and will give you a permanent online record of your work.
