The Research Symposium provides opportunities to hone professional skills especially in speaking and writing, to grow as a scholar, add to your resume and cultivate relationships from different disciplines.

The permanent theme of the USF Research Symposium is Fresh Perspectives. Undergraduates in all disciplines are encouraged to submit a recent research project for presentation. Student-faculty collaborative projects are also encouraged. Presentations are 15-20 minutes and tailored for oral presentation. A panel of faculty review proposals and then develop panels.

As with most academic conferences, the primary goal of the symposium is to provide a friendly, supportive and collegial venue for the exchange of and debate over research, information and ideas. The symposium strives to emulate the environment of a professional conference: panels of presenters, a plenary speaker, complimentary breakfast and luncheon and faculty moderators.
