Research Week allows colleges, schools, departments, programs, and research units to showcase the exciting work their students are doing. It also publicizes opportunities for students to get involved in research or creative activity and provide venues for students to practice presenting their research and creative work.
Host an event during research week
Whether you have an existing event or plan to develop a new one, register your event to be part of Research Week 2020. Registered events will be listed on the Research Week events calendar and included in promotional materials. Examples of Research Week events include college and departmental poster sessions, oral research presentations and symposia, workshops or panels on how students can get involved in research in a particular area, performances, showcases of creative work, and research awards banquets. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Research if you would like suggestions on developing a new event.
Although the official dates for Research Week 2020 are April 13-24, you may also register events that will take place during the weeks immediately preceding or following Research Week. Please consider consulting the current events calendar before finalizing your event to reduce the chances that it will conflict with another event that has already been registered. The final deadline to register an event or submit event updates for the printed program will be Thursday, Feb. 27. Changes or additions to the online events calendar may occur after the deadline, but we cannot guarantee their placement in the printed program.
