Undergraduate research impact on WSU, fields

“SURCA 2018 will be packed with amazing presentations on research, scholarship, and creative activities that students have conducted with mentors from fields all across WSU,” said Pressley. “Around 250 faculty members and postdocs, as well as experts from outside the university, are needed to judge the presentations using a rubric. And, thanks to generous donors, prizes will be awarded once again to the best presenters from eight categories of entries.

“Most judging will be complete when the doors open to the public at 3:30 p.m. that Monday. We welcome everyone at WSU and from the community to come to talk to the student researchers and learn about the important contributions they are making to research at WSU and in their disciplines.”
