Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS)

ORCA invites students to participate in the upcoming 12th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium.

SYMPOSIUM | April 17–18, 2020, Friday & Saturday | Online Conference 

The annual Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS) is a chance for undergraduate students to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. The Undergraduate Research Symposium provides an excellent opportunity for all members of the LMU community to actively engage with students who have been immersed in thought-provoking questions and challenging global issues. The Symposium includes an arts showcase, poster sessions, and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines.

All LMU undergraduates involved in research are encouraged to apply and those not yet involved in research will discover that attending the URS is a great way to learn about the broad range of opportunities available at LMU. On average, over 300 undergraduates participate in the Symposium.

The Symposium includes projects from all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a broad range of exciting research topics. To help participants prepare, the Office of Research and Creative Arts conducts Symposium abstract writing, poster design, and public speaking workshops.

Participant abstracts are published in the Symposium Program, and students can include their presentations on resumes and graduate school applications.
