The Undergraduate Research Day provides a public, university-wide forum for undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity. Students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to submit their faculty mentored research, scholarship, or creative activity. Submissions may be either completed or in-progress.

Participants must submit an abstract and submission form between March 1 - April 5, 2019. By submitting abstracts, all presenters acknowledge that they have read and accepted the Guidelines for Participation and that research meets protocol for human, animal, and radiological research. All presenters also permit the release of photographs taken of them and their work on the day of presentation.
