Undergraduate Research Symposium

Undergraduate Symposium on Research and Creative Activity

2015 Symposium

April 24 - 25, 2015

2015 Undergraduate Symposium on Research and Creative Activity Planning Committee

The Center for Undergraduate Research (CUR) and the College of Arts & Letters (A&L) are proud to co-host the 2015 Undergraduate Symposium. We hope to see undergraduate students from across campus participate in large numbers as both presenters and attendees.


I’m an Undergraduate Student. Why Should I Consider Presenting?

You have a research project that you have conducted as a student at Southern Miss, this is the opportunity to share your work with your peers. You will learn what it is like to present a paper at a conference, and you can list it on your resume/CV, which is very impressive to both perspective employers and graduate schools. There also is substantial prize money that can be won.

I’m an Undergraduate Student, but I’m Not Presenting. Why Should I Come?

Students who have not yet engaged in research are especially encouraged to come to the Symposium to see what student research is all about and learn how they might get involved in the future. You can list your participation on your resume/CV, and will support your peers by coming to hear their research.


Please check this website frequently, as we will add to it as the Symposium nears. We would appreciate you helping us publicize this Symposium through word of mouth and social media (#UGS2014).  Questions? Contact Dr. Amy Chasteen Miller at amy.chasteen@usm.edu
