The Student Research Symposium is Utah State University’s largest showcase of student research. SRS both celebrates student research and improves each student’s ability to communicate their research.
Each April during Research Week, SRS provides space and resources for over 300 graduate and undergraduate presenters to share their research with peers, faculty judges and the campus community through experience, evaluation and training.
Each student gives an oral or poster presentation about their research findings while judges provide feedback and scores. Presenters with the highest scores in each category win awards.
Administrators, faculty, staff and students are invited to participate by attending the poster and oral presentation sessions. In addition to discovering the incredible work USU students engage in every day, audience members enrich the experience by interacting with the presenters, helping them further develop their ability to convey the importance of their work.
Faculty judges are a critical part of the event. If you’re a USU faculty member and you’re interested in helping to judge a session or two, please contact Alexa Sand, Associate VP of Research and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies.
