SURCA is the only WSU-wide event featuring the faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities of undergraduates from all majors, grades, and campuses—work that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to a discipline. It is a symposium hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research, which is part of WSU Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement. SURCA thanks its sponsors, without whom this event could not take place.
