Texas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol

Date: March 28, 2017

Location: Texas State Capitol in Austin, Texas

Purpose: To showcase the experiences of undergraduate students engaged in research for Texas legislators and the public through high-quality poster displays. The program will highlight how research conducted by undergraduate students positively impacts Texas—and Texans—with the theme: Transforming Texas Through Undergraduate Research

Up to 60 research projects will be displayed in poster format reflecting the work of numerous undergraduate students representing over 50 general academic institutions across Texas (both public and private/independent universities and colleges).

This event is coordinated by the Council of Public University Presidents and Chancellors (CPUPC), the Independent Colleges and Universities of Texas, Inc. (ICUT) and the Texas Association of Community Colleges (TACC).

Student participants and their faculty advisors will have the opportunity to tour the Capitol, attend committee hearings and observe the daily meeting of the Senate and/or House of Representatives. Student participants are encouraged to work with their institution in scheduling meetings with their respective legislators.
