You are cordially invited to join us at the Twenty-Fifth Annual
UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium to be held on Saturday,
May 19, 2018, in the UCI Student Center. This year’s theme, “Undergraduate Research: Innovation & Collaboration,” reminds us of the power of relationships in fostering the process of discovery. We are pleased to announce that this year’s Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Elizabeth E. Cauffman, Professor of Psychology and Social Behavior.
This stimulating day-long event
provides an excellent opportunity for you, UCI faculty and staff,
parents, alumni, members of the
media, and the outside community to participate actively in communicating
about research and creative activities in all academic fields.
Symposium gives students a rich experience in the presentation
aspect of the research process through their oral and/or poster
We encourage you to make a presentation at the Symposium or to
attend and learn about the research endeavors of your fellow undergraduates.
