The Symposium on Undergraduate Scholarship is an annual showcase of intellectual achievement, scholarly collaboration and discovery that occurs as a result of Capital’s robust faculty-mentored undergraduate research program. The symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 16.
Each year, hundreds of students disseminate through oral and poster presentations the results of months — sometimes years — of research conducted alongside their peers under the guidance of the faculty mentors. Presentation topics are diverse and often cross-disciplinary. Inevitably, dozens of Capital students are selected to present at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and at many professional conferences across the state, region and country.
Poster presentations will take place from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm in The Capital Center Field House. Symposium oral presentations will be given in Battelle Hall from 2 to 4:30 pm. The symposium is open to all undergraduate students. Student scholarship is broadly defined as:
- Original research, artwork, or creative writing
- Integrative literature reviews
- Performance pieces
- Case study research projects
- Scholarly critiques
- Unique internships and study abroad experiences
