Presenting the work of the undergraduate student researchers.
Since 2004, the Student Research Symposium at Cal Lutheran has showcased the work of top students, most of whom have spent the summer working full time on research and creative projects in collaboration with faculty mentors. This immersion is made possible by the generous support of fellowships and grants which fund full-time summer research.
We had another wonderful summer of gatherings for undergraduates and mentors involved in research and creative scholarly projects. The OURCS hosted over 30 projects in the natural sciences, social and behavioral sciences, management, applied scientific computing, and mathematics. Projects were funded by numerous sources including Swenson, Stauffer, Darling, Jung, Overton, and university fellowships (SURFs). Students and mentors gathered together regularly as a scholarly community to discuss their projects.
The experience will culminate in the Student Research Symposium (SRS) on Saturday, October 14 in the Ahmanson Science Center. The morning will begin at 9:00 am in Richter Hall with six 10-minute student presentations, followed by an interactive poster session on the patio until 12:00. The event is free and open to the community.
