URS Banner 3

The Undergraduate Research Symposium at UMSL provides a professional-style venue for undergraduates to present their original research, scholarship, creative works and performance to faculty, staff, administrators, students and visitors.

The URS is an UMSL-wide event organized annually in the spring by a team of dedicated students, faculty and staff members representing many academic units and disciplines.

A distributed model of funding support is employed, such that departments, schools, colleges, outside donors and others may contribute towards event expenses including cost of the event and prizes.

The URS is an inclusive event for all UMSL undergraduates, regardless of discipline or project. Presentations may be in either oral or poster format, and may represent research, scholarship, or creative works. Resources to prepare for the event and feedback following student presentations are both provided. We strive to provide undergraduates the support they need to have a successful academic conference experience.
