Undergraduate Researchers

Research Week provides excellent ways for students to learn about research opportunities and present their own research, and for departments, colleges, and programs to showcase their students’ achievements. Events range from undergraduate poster presentations, exhibitions, performances, and symposia to guest speakers and workshops aimed at helping undergraduates achieve their research goals. Don’t miss the multi-disciplinary Longhorn Research Bazaar, which will take place on Wednesday, April 19, 12-2 p.m. in the Union Ballroom.
