Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium
Summer Symposium 2022 is in-person:
Summer symposium is an in-person poster session open to WVU students, students in WVU summer research programs, and undergraduate students from the region who wish to showcase their summer research and creative efforts. For the first time, the Office of Undergraduate Research will be combining efforts with WVU Eberly College of Arts and Sciences to host students from across the region.
We expect over 100 undergraduate poster presentations in a variety of disciplines. The symposium will be judged, and winning presentations from each category will be announced on the day of the event.
Join us to celebrate the accomplishments of our undergraduates and to learn about the wonderful research ongoing at WVU and throughout the region!
