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.
Students present their work in short talks, posters, visual arts exhibitions, and performances and get feedback from judges on their work. The most highly rated presenters in each broad disciplinary category are given distinction at the student awards ceremony that takes place on Friday, April 12.
Launched in 2016, Research in the Arts Day began as an independent celebration of creative and scholarly research by students, faculty, and staff in the Caine College of the Arts, and has become an integral part of Research Week through its integration with SRS. Accommodations will be made for performance and pop-up gallery presentations.
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.
