The VSU 2019 Annual Undergraduate Research Conference is a gathering of students, faculty, and administrators from VSU and other institutions.
The conference is held annually in spring and includes both oral and poster presentations from undergraduate students about their research. In previous years, the conference focused on students doing research in agriculture, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (A-STEM), and health disparities. Starting this year, however, students from all disciplines are encouraged to attend.
The conference is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) HBCU-UP A-STEM Program and the NSF Louise Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program (LS-AMP). VSU recognizes the importance of research and highly encourages all A-STEM students to participate in research while earning their degree.
The objectives of the conference are to help undergraduate students enhance their communication skills and to better understand how to prepare for careers in a global workforce. The general format for the one day conference will include: Student oral (Morning) and poster (Afternoon) presentations.
