Conferences and Symposiums

Student Research Symposium


The California Lutheran University Student Research Symposium showcases the work of Cal Lutheran's top students during Homecoming Weekend of each year. Most of these students have spent their entire summer working full-time side-by-side with a faculty mentor on their project. The original results that are shared at this venue are likely also to be presented at professional conferences throughout the region and country. Students from a wide variety of disciplines including Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Exercise Science, Global Studies, Math, Psychology, and Religion share their work in 15-minute oral presentations at the start of the morning, followed by an interactive poster session.

The event, which takes place on the Saturday of Homecoming weekend, is free and open to the community-at-large as well. Each year sees a standing-room-only crowd celebrating the work of these bright young researchers.
