The 24th annual Miami University Undergraduate Research Forum will be held Wednesday, April 25, in Shriver Center and the Armstrong Student Center. All are welcome to visit the forum, which showcases the creative and scholarly activities of undergraduates who engaged in research over the course of the academic year.

Oral presentations will be held throughout the day. Three poster sessions will be held in Shriver Center’s John E. Dolibois Room (formerly the multipurpose room):

  • Session A: 10:00–11:30am
  • Session B: 1:30–2:45pm
  • Session C: 3:00–4:15pm

Programs with times and specific locations of all presentations will be available at the event.

All Miami students are invited to present at the annual forum. This year more than 300 research projects will be presented by more than 500 students. Presentations range from faculty-mentored independent study research to large group community projects and course-related projects.

More than 2,000 Miami undergraduates work with professors on funded research each year.

The forum is sponsored by the Graduate School, OARS, the Office of Research for Undergraduates (ORU) and the offices of the president and the provost.
