The USI Endeavor Undergraduate Research and Creative Works symposium is a conference to encourage, support, and publicize undergraduate research, scholarship, and creativity. Students who have received Endeavor awards for research, creativity projects, or presentations are required to present at the symposium. Under normal circumstances, the event is held in Carter Hall. However, as we’re all aware, these are not normal times, and the 2021 symposium will be held as a virtual event. Students will have the option of presenting their work in either of two formats – as an electronic poster or a recorded presentation.
All undergraduate students are invited to participate regardless of whether they have applied for or used Endeavor funds. Students who have completed research, scholarly or creative endeavors, either as independent projects or within the confines of a class project, are encouraged to submit an abstract or description of their project and present their results to the University and community. Students from universities other than USI are invited to submit an abstract for consideration for the symposium.This website will open to receive abstracts from February 15, through March 8, 2021. Once all the submissions are compiled, the symposium will go online on Thursday, April 1, 2021.
