The Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE) is an annual student symposium intended to recognize accomplishments in research and creative expression. This year SOURCE will be held on Friday, April 12th.
As a forum for cross-disciplinary sharing and discussion of original work, SOURCE provides opportunities for faculty-student engagement outside the structured classroom setting and for students to share their creative work and research with peers, faculty, university administration, and guests.
The all-day event includes student presentations given in one of two formats: oral presentations and poster presentations. All presentations will be given in person. To be considered for the event, students must have a sponsoring faculty member, and submit an abstract (up to 250 words). We honor SEU's HSI status by accepting abstracts in English or Spanish. Presentations will be given in the language in which abstract was submitted. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided to all attendees.
Abstract Writing Workshop on February 01, 2024 from 3:00 - 4:00 pm in Munday Library room 141
A recording of a previous poster presentation workshop can be found here.
Oral presentation workshop on 4/1 from 3:30-4:30 LIBR 143.
This year, SOURCE is on Friday, April 12, 2024

The link below will take you to a form that will ask you to add a description of your work (Abstract), the name of your faculty mentor, and what kind of presentation you'd like to deliver (Oral or Poster).
Do you have students who've done notably strong work in your academic or creative courses? Encourage them to submit 250-word abstracts describing their projects. All you have to do is agree to act as a student's sponsoring mentor. Students will put your name on their submission form, and you'll receive a convenient email confirmation. You may also choose to help your student:
Being a SOURCE mentor is a meaningful way to serve the university, your students, and your discipline. We also encourage you to invite all of your students to participate. Oral presentations and the poster session are open to the SEU community. Even if they aren't presenting at the event, attending allows students to experience the making and sharing of knowledge and creative expression in action. The SOURCE committee will officially recognize all faculty mentors with letters of appreciation.
