Undergraduate Research


Undergraduate Research (UGR) is student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship that produces “an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original or creative contribution to the discipline.” Undergraduate Research opportunities include: Departmental Honors Projects, Research Intensive Independent Study, and Research Intensive courses

Spring Symposium
Every Spring, a research symposium is sponsored for the public presentation of the results of students’ research and creative projects. In addition, students have opportunities to submit their work for presentation at state, regional, and national conferences in their disciplines and at the National Council on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) conference 

2015 Spring Symposium
The 2015 JU Faculty & Student Symposium scheduled for Monday, April 6 through Wednesday, April 8, 2015 in DCOB Conference Rooms B & C. The Symposium is a formal presentation event similar to professional conferences.
