The symposium

Join us at this year's symposium

ASU undergraduate students, community college students, high school students and their mentors are invited to present their research and creative projects at this year's New College Undergraduate Research and Creative Projects Symposium.

Research projects will be in conference poster format. This event will feature a poster session including but not limited to NCUIRE, individualized instruction, capstone experiences, etc.

There will also be a keynote address, and award ceremony. Faculty judges will determine awards for the best posters submitted by NCUIRE and non-NCUIRE students, while a student award will be granted on student evaluations of posters.

Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
