University of Minnesota - Morris

morris_symbol_sm

It's certainly been inspiring to read about all the other great Undergraduate Research Week events going on this week. Here's what we're doing at the University of Minnesota, Morris:
Our 15th annual Undergraduate Research Symposium takes place on Saturday, with 77 students presenting their research and creative work at oral or poster sessions. Another 8 are unable to present at our campus event because they're attending NCUR.
We organized a series of brown-bag works-in-progress talks each day this week to give students with research in progress the opportunity to speak to the campus community about what they've accomplished so far.
Finally, as a way to de-mystify research opportunities for first-years and sophomores, we held an Undergraduate Research Story night at which three senior students talked about their experiences with research and creative activity, how they got involved, and what they gained from the process. One student will be studying climate-change resilient agriculture in Denmark on a Fulbright, one has a book deal from Michigan State University Press for her photographic project on American Indian university students, and one, after working at the USDA Soil Lab, will be attending graduate school in North Dakota to study wheat genetics.
