Research Week allows colleges, schools, departments, programs, and research units to showcase the exciting work their students are doing. It also publicizes opportunities for students to get involved in research or creative activity and provide venues for students to practice presenting their research and creative work.
Whether you have an existing event or plan to develop a new one, register your event to be part of Research Week 2016. Registered events will be listed on the Research Week events calendar and included in promotional materials. Examples of Research Week events include college and departmental poster sessions, oral research presentations and symposia, workshops or panels on how students can get involved in research in a particular area, performances, showcases of creative work, and research awards banquets. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Research if you would like suggestions on developing a new event.
Although the official dates for Research Week 2016 are April 18-22, you may also register events that will take place during the weeks immediately preceding or following Research Week. Please consider consulting the current events calendar before finalizing your event to reduce the chances that it will conflict with another event that has already been registered. The deadline to register an event will be Friday, March 11, 2016.
Does your organization connect students with opportunities or resources to get involved in undergraduate research or creative activity? Host a table at the Longhorn Research Bazaar on Wednesday, April 20, noon – 2 p.m. Held at the Union Ballroom, the Bazaar is a festive event where departments, colleges, programs, and student organizations from across campus highlight their activities and opportunities for student involvement. By hosting a table at the Bazaar, you can publicize your organization to students, hand out informational materials, and showcase products, creative work, and artifacts resulting from student work. Students presenting work at your table are asked to separately submit an abstract so that their names will appear in the Bazaar program. (Students whose research or creative activity does not involve physical artifacts are advised to present their work as a poster.) The deadline to reserve a table is Friday, March 11, 2016.
