Taking place on the last day of class each Fall and Spring semester (before Reading Day), this campus-wide showcase is designed for students who have conducted research and/or creative scholarship as a part of their class activities. By presenting a research ‘poster’ or display, students have a chance to share their work with a more diverse audience, to practice research communication, and to take greater ownership of their projects.
The Office of Undergraduate Research will again be hosting Spring Research Day from 2-4 pm on the afternoon of Thursday, May 2nd. Instructors interested in having their classes participate should email Dr. Humfeld by Friday, March 22nd. To learn more about the Spring Research Day, check out our “Presentation Opportunities” webpage.
Check our Events page in MU Engage for workshops relating to research communication.
Contact us if you are interested in having an Undergraduate Research Ambassador or Undergraduate Research staff present to your student group, organization, department, or class.
