Annual Undergraduate and Graduate Research Symposium - April 16, 2013
20th Annual Undergraduate and Graduate Research Symposium
~ April 16, 2013 ~
The Morgan State University Undergraduate Research Symposium has been conducted successfully for 20 years. The first symposium was held in the spring of 1994 with six student presenters. Since that time, the number of presenters has grown to over 100 in some years, with a current average of about 80 presentations annually. In the late 1990's, graduate students began participating and the name was changed to the Undergraduate and Graduate Research Symposium.
The symposium has traditionally been multidisciplinary, with presenters from the STEM disciplines (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Physics); social sciences (Psychology, Public Health, and Social Work; and most recently, Architecture. All presentations are judged by volunteer judges with a broad range of expertise. Undergraduate and graduate oral and poster presentations are followed by an awards luncheon featuring a prominent scientist as keynote speaker. Prizes are awarded to the top presentations in each discipline.
The Research Symposium provides an opportunity for students to share research findings and best practices that foster academic development as well as utilization of institutional and career resources. This year's research symposium will include both poster and oral presentations. Symposium sessions will include topics from Architecture; the Biological , Computer and Environmental Sciences; Chemistry; Engineering; Mathematics; Physics, Psychology; Public Health; Social Work; Sociology and Anthropology; and Sustainability & Design.
Abstracts must be received on or before 4 pm on March 15, 2013.
