Undergraduate Research

Student Research Symposium

The Student Research Symposium (SRS) is our end-of-year celebration of faculty-mentored student scholarship. It is open to all to attend.

The SRS allows undergraduate and graduate students to present their original projects under faculty supervision - for example, as part of an independent study, honors thesis, Master's thesis, seminar study, or other supervised work. 


2022 SRS: Friday, May 6, from 4:00-6:30 p.m., at the SUNY New Paltz campus library.

 Apply to Present at the SRS

Projects are welcome from all scholarly disciplines and can take numerous forms, such as critical reviews, laboratory projects, field studies, or creative works. Whatever its form, the presentation allows students to share their completed (or nearly completed) projects with a broad audience. 

Students can apply to present at the 2022 SRS by submitting an abstract to our SRS Submission Portal. They must have a faculty supervisor for the project. Please see our guidelines on Writing an Abstract.

The deadline for abstract submissions is April 22, 2022.

All presentations are in poster format. Please see our Poster Presentation Tips for an orientation to poster presentations, plus guidelines and suggestions on how to create effective posters for your presentation. It also provides links to several useful websites with additional advice.
