V-CUR's Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS) is a one-day event showcasing cadet work in all disciplines. Cadets may present fully developed research resulting from a class, an independent study, capstone class, Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI), etc. The results of this research are presented in the form of both posters (informal demonstrations) or papers (more formal short lectures) as part of a special day of events.
Cadets also have an opportunity to highlight alternative work, such as internships, experiential learning and service projects. In addition, you may propose a panel about a topic of your choice or propose workshops of interest to you.
2021 Spring URS occurred on Monday, April 26, virtually.
The Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI) supports VCUR's goals by providing a structured program and financial support for research projects conducted during the summer at VMI. Cadets engage in in-depth research with their faculty mentor while receiving course credit. It is a competitive application process.
