The Undergraduate Research Exposition is a College-wide event in which UR students at all levels and in all areas of study are invited to present their investigative and creative work.

The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study. The annual conference gives undergraduate scholars in all fields and from all types of institutions of higher learning a forum to share the results of their work through posters, presentations, performances and works of art.

The National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) is a platform for undergraduates from across the nation to share their interest in research. The Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) strongly believes that student researchers have the ability to make meaningful and significant contributions in all fields of study and to the greater body of world research knowledge.

For the past 17 years our chapter has hosted the spring symposium where students and local researchers gather to discuss current advances in materials research. 

This Northeast regional undergraduate research conference is held each year, typically in the latter half of the Spring semester.  Hosted on the campus of the University of Rochester since 1981, the symposium will be hosted at other regional colleges every third year as of 2006. At RSPS symposia, research projects have been presented in talks by undergraduates representing regional institutions.

This event will be geared towards undergraduate physics majors at schools within a few hours driving distance from Syracuse.  In recent years, more than 100 students from 16 colleges and universities have participated in URD.

The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics fosters interdisciplinary reflection on moral issues, including questions of justice and public policy, character, duty, and responsibility. This symposium is an outstanding opportunity for student scholars, creative writers, filmmakers and photographers to discuss their ethics-related work with leading scholars and professionals in their fields and to participate in a significant discussion of ethical concerns.

Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, offers opportunities for outstanding undergraduate students to share their research through both traditional poster presentations and virtual multimedia presentations. Presentations will be evaluated by career researchers to provide invaluable feedback for students. Awards will be presented for outstanding research.
