Undergraduate Research Symposia

Twice yearly the Office of Undergraduate Research sponsors the Undergraduate Research Symposium. It is a forum for students to present their research findings and creative outputs and a celebration of the diversity of inquiry that takes place at WashU. We encourage students in all academic departments, programs and schools to present their original research and creative projects. The event has included a keynote address, selected student talks, a poster session, and performances and demonstrations of projects. 

For students who are interested in getting started in research, the symposium is a great opportunity to learn about the process from your peers. Meet researchers in your area of interest to find out about resources and opportunities. Everyone is welcome to attend the symposia! 

Upcoming Symposia

The next OUR symposium will take place from 10AM - 5PM on Friday, April 19, 2024. Visit the Spring 2024 Symposium webpage for more details about registration and attendance!
