Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creativity
The Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creativity (formerly TURF-CreWS) provides ambitious, intellectually motivated undergraduate students the opportunity to present and defend their original research or creative work among colleagues, faculty, family, and friends.
The Symposium is open to all departments and all colleges. Through its emphasis on original research or creative work, from theory-driven critical analysis of significant social issues to the development of unique individual artistic talents, the Symposium seeks to inspire undergraduate students to engage, analyze, critique, and advise the world around them--beginning with their own social, ideological, or cultural communities--so that they may contribute ideas that make for a better society and world.
We welcome research or creative work from every discipline. All schools, colleges, departments and programs in the university are eligible to nominate undergraduate student papers, posters, performances, and other creative works. Symposium participation is on a competitive basis.
