Auburn University is pleased to announce the return of the This is Research: Student Symposium, following a successful first year. This is Research: Student Symposium 2016 will give students an opportunity to share their research university-wide. Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to participate through oral presentations, posters and creative scholarship displays. The symposium also will include a mentor recognition luncheon, judging of students’ presentations and opportunities for prospective students and potential employers to view and discuss students’ research. An awards ceremony, held one week following the symposium, will feature a keynote speaker and reception.
