Show Me Research Week

& Undergraduate Research Week

April 17-21, 2023

The University of Missouri is home to a thriving research community that nurtures and supports thousands of students, who are learning to become a new generation of thinkers, problem solvers and innovators. Show Me Research Week is a celebration of their accomplishments and a showcase for all community stakeholders to see their investments come to fruition. This week was born from a collaboration between the Bond Life Sciences Center and the Office of Undergraduate Research. Prior to the pandemic, both organizations held long-standing research weeks to celebrate their respective annual accomplishments. In reimagining a new event for a new era, it was decided they wanted a campus wide showcase for the entire research community.

Undergraduate Research Week at Mizzou (URW@Mizzou) is important, and is at the heart of Show Me Research Week. Working in conjunction with Bond Life Sciences Center allows us to better recognize the scholarship and research being conducted by undergraduate students at the University of Missouri, as well as the faculty who take great care and time to mentor them. 

With a variety of events and programming, we invite everyone at MU to join us in celebrating the students and the faculty who make Mizzou a Tier 1 Research Institution.

The Spring Research and Creative Achievements Forum will be the main event, which include the research and scholarship of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows as well as undergraduate students. It will be hosted in-person in Memorial Union over the course of three days, April 18 – 20. We are also proud to again host the Humanities Symposium as part of URW@Mizzou, the theme for 2023 will be Surveillance and the Self.
