Undergraduate Research Symposium

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Thank you to all of the student presenters, faculty mentors and attendees of the 1st Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium!

The 2nd Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 in the Anderson University Center.

The PLU Undergraduate Research Symposium showcases the university-wide research and creative activities of PLU students and brings together the exciting work occurring across campus in multiple inter-disciplinary sessions.

For students interested in but not yet engaged in research, attending the Symposium is a great way to discover opportunities available at PLU and to take steps to begin your own research journey. Involvement in faculty-mentored research early in your undergraduate studies has many benefits and will help you to explore and learn more in-depth about an area of study or future career path that interests you, gain invaluable hands-on experience and organizational skills, and learn to balance independent and collaborative work. The connections made with faculty mentors will enhance your undergraduate experience and likely extend well beyond into your professional career.

The abstract deadline and details about the submission process will be available early in the fall semester.
