"Students learn the most when they engage in their own searches for knowledge and discovery. Our program in undergraduate research and the symposium stimulate this journey, and I am proud both of our students and of the faculty and staff who guide their education."

The Symposium is an opportunity for our students to share the results of a topic they explored in depth with the entire Kent State community.

Sponsored by The Office of the Provost, Honors College, Research and Sponsored Programs, Undergraduate Studies, and University Libraries.
