Three sessions were held, one morning session (Session A: 9am-1030am) and two afternoon sessions (Session B: 1pm-230pm, Session C: 4pm-530pm).  

Thanks to all the student presenters who make the choice to participate in the online forum, and especially to faculty and graduate student mentors who help to prepare them. This year, all presentations were delivered as 7-minute talks, through 21 Zoom sessions spread across three sessions: Session A, 9-1030am, Session B, 1-230pm, and Session C 4-530pm. Each session consists of seven concurrent clusters. Faculty, graduate student mentors and staff have volunteered their time as moderators to ensure a smooth running of the many concurrent sessions. 

Miami's Undergraduate Research Forum website serves as a digital repository to host presentation materials (a project abstract and gallery-walk images from the slides, an image of your poster., etc.). Open to the public, the site is searchable by research topic/ student major, participant names, keywords, STEM, etc.

The Office of Research for Undergraduates (ORU) is very appreciative of Lindsey Masters and Lisa Sheard from University Libraries who have been significant partners, updating and populating the 2022 UR Forum website in a timely manner. Special thank you to Lindsey & Lisa from Martha Weber, coordinator of Undergraduate Research, for your dedication to the WordPress site digital repository.

The Office of Research for Undergraduates (ORU) is very appreciative of institutional support from IT services, and staff at CAS-IT to remotely deliver  presentations using the Zoom platform; and to staff from Career Services and University Libraries for conducting workshops that helped prepare student presenters for the forum.
