A step into the world of professional presentations
The Temple Undergraduate Research Forum and Creative Arts Symposium last week showcased student work from across three schools and colleges.
In addition to paper presentations from students in the College of Liberal Arts, students from the School of Communications and Theater presented papers and performed theatrical pieces, and students from the College of Science and Technology presented posters on their research (left).
The expanded forum and symposium is part of a larger Temple initiative to support undergraduate research, allowing students to learn firsthand about researching and presenting professionally in their fields.
In January, the Provost’s Office announced the Undergraduate Research Incentive Fund, an annual allotment of $20,000 that will be used to subsidize deserving undergraduate projects.
Temple Libraries and the Provost’s Office sponsor up to three $1,000 prizes for undergraduate research.
The Diamond Scholars program, which debuted this academic year, matches promising undergraduate researchers with faculty mentors.
