Shriver Center, 701 E. Spring St.,

Miami's celebration of collaborative learning builds on a rich tradition, of showcasing scholarly and creative works conducted by our undergraduate students, under the guidance of dedicated mentors (faculty, staff, and graduate students). 

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

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of this Amazing Event. In addition to the poster presentations, over 35 undergraduates were engaged in Ten-minute talk presentations. We appreciate the Miami Graduate students who served as session moderators and staffed the Poster Sessions Check-In.
