This is no ordinary semester.

“The pandemic derailed plans for our usual symposium, but we were determined to find a way to highlight our students’ efforts,” says Dani Lawrence, academic advisor for the Department of Biology. “Our students have already had to give up so much this semester, we did not want to let them lose the chance to showcase their hard work.”

With Biology department head Diane Alston and system administrator Joe Shope, Lawrence set to work on a virtual version of the symposium, featuring a format in which people visit a website displaying the posters and can submit comments and ask questions. All are invited to visit the site, Spring 2020 Virtual Undergraduate Research Symposium, which will be open for comments through Friday, April 17. Following the symposium, the research posters will remain publicly available as an online archive.
