Minnesota Undergraduate Scholars Events

Posters at saint paul

The Minnesota Undergraduate Scholars Posters at Saint Paul Event is a unique event that invites students from the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System to share their research and academic work with legislators and state government leaders. Each February, students are invited to the Rotunda at the Minnesota State Capitol Building to present their posters as part of an all day event. This process highlights the importance and excellence of undergraduate research to state legislators and helps state officials understand the importance of undergraduate research programs across the state. The event ends with a celebration of achievement for all students involved and opportunities to view the work of other students from different disciplines as well as other colleges and universities.
