Fall Undergraduate Research Expo
Date: November 18
Oral Presentations: 8:30-11:30am, STEW 214
Poster Symposium: 1:30-3:30pm, PMU Ballrooms

Submitting: To be considered, students must submit an abstract through a Qualtrics form, which can be found on the Fall Expo webpage. It is helpful if you walk through the application with your students, who should list you as their research mentor. There is no submission category specifically for students in Engl. 106/108.

Submission Deadline: October 29, 11:59pm

You may also view a PDF version of the Qualtrics application form.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to see other undergraduates share their work. If you have students who are considering submitting for the Spring conference, encourage them to attend the Fall Expo.
