Become a Sponsor

The University Research Symposium inspires students to pursue careers in science by harnessing their curiosity as they discover, acquire, and share knowledge with their peers and the community. The 10th annual URS takes place on March 9, 2021, and will bring together - in a virtual environment -  hundreds of faculty and students to forge new relationships, share innovative practices, and explore opportunities for future collaboration. Scheduled events include a student presentation competition, graduate student talks, and keynote addresses by renowned speakers.

The program explores research projects from a slate of regional universities in a variety of disciplines including biological and environmental science, physical science, psychology, and more.

The URS has grown to include nearly 20 participating regional institutions, and has resulted in more confident research presentations among participants, the ability to successfully highlight research findings, and promoting networking and recruitment between students and employers. Students have the opportunity to compete and present original research at this annual event.
