Call for Abstracts - Undergraduate Symposium on Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity

As we know, involvement in undergraduate research is often a significant milestone in a student's professional and personal development, and greatly enhances their overall college experience.

A call for abstracts is currently underway for students who want to participate in the fourth annual Undergraduate Symposium on Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity. Abstracts will be accepted through Feb. 1, 2017. Faculty members who engage students in research, either independently or through course-based projects, should encourage students to participate in the symposium.

The 2017 symposium will be held on March 21 in the Kent Student Center. Students from all majors on all Kent State campuses are encouraged to submit their work – from creative dance pieces to scientific research. Students can present their work through posters, roundtable discussions, oral presentations or any creative medium.

Students who take part in the Undergraduate Symposium can:

  • Compete for cash awards
  • Develop research and presentation skills  
  • Prepare for graduate school or professional opportunities
  • Share the topic they explored with the Kent State community
