Opportunities > Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

Each fall, the students who participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE ) program present their research results to the campus community. The SURE students work full-time on a project under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The 2009 SURE presentations will take place early in the fall semester. Each student will present for approximately 15 minutes.  This event is open to all.
