RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — Dozens of undergraduate students from the University of California, Riverside will present the results of their research and creative activity projects at the seventh annual Symposium for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity, to be held April 29 & 30 on the third floor of the Highlander Union Building (HUB).

Sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Education, the symposium is the opportunity for undergraduate students to present the results of their faculty-mentored projects to an audience of peers, faculty and administrators. In addition to making a presentation, students will have their abstracts published in the Symposium Proceedings. In all, 154 students are expected to present their work through oral presentations, poster presentations, performances or exhibits.

To participate in the symposium, students must be involved in faculty mentored research, scholarship or creative work. They work with their faculty members to draft an abstract and plan the best presentation style that fits the project.

“The symposium is an interdisciplinary event that showcases research, scholarship and creative activities from across campus, includes participation with faculty mentors from all colleges and schools, including the newly established School of Medicine,” said Veronique Rorive, director of educational initiatives for the UCR Office of Undergraduate Education.

Admission to the symposium is free and it is open to the campus community and the general public. Refreshments will be provided. Awards for the outstanding presentation and the outstanding poster will be made at the closing ceremony on April 30 at 3:00 p.m. in HUB 302.
