The UW-W Undergraduate Research Program is pleased to announce a Virtual Undergraduate Research Day to be held on May 1, 2020. All students who have participated in URP in the past year are encouraged to participate in Virtual UR Day! The due date to email us your materials (or share with us from Google Docs) is April 29. Please note that your research does not need to be entirely complete. We understand this is a quick turnaround, therefore URP students are not required to participate in Virtual UR Day.
Feel free to "like" research posts to show your support and comment to spark conversation!
As you know, it was planned for UW-Whitewater to host UW-System Symposium for spring 2020. Due to COVID-19, the event was canceled. Many of our research students/grantees still like to showcase their research findings. This is where Virtual UR Day comes in! Typically, UW-W's Undergraduate Research Program holds an Undergraduate Research (UR) Day every semester, so we have moved the process of poster-sharing and speech-giving online. Once we receive submissions via our email or Google Docs sharing, we will be sharing some on a Canvas page that you’ll be invited to!
You have two choices for your Virtual UR Day presentation: you may provide us your research poster that you have already made for another event, OR you may link to a brief video if you don’t already have a poster. No matter which option you choose, you need to write up a half-page description of your research. Share with us what you would like people to know about your research in general terms.
Finally, your participation will be awarded! When you share your research presentation with us, please send us your mailing address. We will send you a very nice certificate from URP. You can add this certification to your portfolio and use it when you need to apply for jobs or graduate schools.
