WYOMING UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH AND INQUIRY ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES

April 25- 27, 2019 A Celebration of Creativity

Calling all undergraduates, faculty, family, staff and friends! You are invited to participate in Wyoming’s Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Across the Disciplines event, formerly Undergraduate Research day.

Why the change? To state it simply, one day is not enough to highlight the research and scholarship undergraduate students do across this campus and within the community colleges.

The University of Wyoming and Wyoming’s community colleges provide many opportunities for undergraduates to participate in independent research projects across multiple disciplines such as, agriculture, business, education, engineering, health sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathematical sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities. Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Across the Disciplines event recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of these student researchers.

Friday, April 26 and April 27, will see oral presentations in the Engineering Education and Research Building and the Classroom building. Presentations vary in length, between 15 - 30 minutes depending on discipline. An agenda of student presentations and location will be available shortly!

Saturday, April 27 beginning at noon, students and their family can enjoy lunch and an inspiring talk by UW Alum Joe Riis* about research and ways he integrates the creative process into his work.

Saturday,April 27, will conclude with the poster session at the Union. From 1:15- 3:15 pm.

All sessions are open and the public is encouraged to join in the celebration. Lunch is open, however, RSVP is required. RSVP here!


* Joe is a wildlife biologist turned photojournalist and filmmaker known for his pioneering documentation of animal migrations in the West. He aims to give migratory animals a visual voice in our current human culture. Joe has worked in collaboration with wildlife researchers, private landowners, and State/Federal agencies in the Yellowstone ecosystem. He's also a UW alum!

The purpose of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Across the Disciplines is to recognize and to celebrate the accomplishments of undergraduate student researchers. The topics will include research in the areas of agriculture, business, education, engineering, health sciences, biological and physical sciences, mathematical sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities.

Two awards will be given by Phi Beta Kappa. The first category honors a project that showcases excellence in non-vocational, non-professional or non-technical studies. The second award is given to projects that articulate the interfaces between science and the human condition in a nuanced way that shows understanding and not simply consideration. Winners expertly knit together the physical, intellectual, ethical and social interfaces of the project. If you want your project to be considered for either of these opportunities, please indicate so on the registration form. For more information on these awards and PBK take a look at their site.
