WSU Undergraduate Education SURCA 2016


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 the Office of Undergraduate Education. SURCA thanks its sponsors, without whom this event could not take place.

SURCA 2016 was held on Monday, March 28. Thank you to the participating students, mentors, judges, and award sponsors that helped make this the largest SURCA to date! The list of award winners for SURCA 2016 is now available.
