View as a pdf

The Student Research Symposium is Utah State University’s largest showcase of student research. SRS both celebrates student research and improves students’ ability to communicate their research. Each April during Research Week, over 300 graduate and undergraduate presenters share their research in the Library. Students deliver oral or poster presentations about their research findings while judges provide feedback and scores. Presenters with the highest scores in each category win awards. On Thursday, April 13, several English students or students working on English subjects will present. Faculty mentors for the student projects include Professors Christine Cooper-Rompato, Joyce Kinkead, and Brian McCuskey.
