Information for Research Mentors

The Undergraduate Research Showcase provides a forum for students to present faculty-guided student research and creative activity across disciplines. The URS is consistently growing, and this event provides an avenue for students not yet engaged in research to learn more about getting involved. We hope that you encourage your students to participate in either our spring symposium or summer showcase this year.

The faculty mentor listed by a student in the submission form will be notified of the student’s entry for the Undergraduate Research Symposium/Showcase via email. The students are aware that all submitted abstracts should be vetted by a faculty research mentor prior to submission.

All students who complete a submission form will be published in the Abstract Booklet. Research mentors will be listed along with their students’ abstracts. During presentations which are being judged, faculty mentors are not to intervene while a student is being questioned by a judge.

Further information about the URS can be found in the URS Presenter Handbook.
