Annual Events in Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research Fair

The Research Fair connects undergraduates looking for research experiences with departments, labs, and other resources that can help that search. To help provide students with local, discipline-specific guidance about getting started in undergraduate research, the Office of Undergraduate Research holds an annual Undergraduate Research Fair each fall. Patterned after the Study Abroad Fair and the Academic Open Houses, there will be tables populated by knowledgeable experts from each department/program who can answer questions concerning undergraduate research in that discipline.

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in Douglass Ballroom
