2022 CRRES Undergraduate Research Program Symposium
Friday, April 22, 2022
Stop by to hear from this year's cohort of Undergraduate Researchers! Every year, students in the Undergraduate Research Program work with a faculty mentor to gain hands-on research experience. Many students join faculty research projects, while others conduct an independent study with support from their mentor. Come celebrate their work and learn about research they've conducted throughout the year in a symposium poster session! Light refreshments will be provided.

Celebrating Scholarship across Campus
The CRRES Research Symposium brings together students across campus who are conducing and have interests in research on race and ethnicity. Mainstays of the event include a keynote address from a visiting scholar, a workshop with the keynote speaker, and graduate student panels. In 2019, CRRES integrated its Undergraduate Research Program (URP) poster sessions into the Symposium, bringing a wider audience to both events.
Topics covered by symposium presenters have covered a wide scope, including research on education, health, identity, resistance, sound, and police encounters. The number of schools and departments represented each year have only grown and has encompassed African American and African Diaspora Studies, Comparative Literature, Criminal Justice, Education, English, Folklore and Musicology, History, Media, Political Science, Sociology, and Spanish and Portuguese.
