Join us for the 2023 SURP+ Symposium: Celebrate Learn by Doing Research at Cal Poly!

Friday, October 13, 2023
Engineering Plaza (between the ATL, Bonderson and Building 192)

The Annual SURP+ Research Poster Symposium will occur from 1:30-3:30pm on Friday, Oct 13.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to learn about student research at Cal Poly by engaging with over 100 research and creative activity projects completed in Summer 2023 as part of Cal Poly’s Summer Undergraduate Research Programs (SURPs).

The event will be held in the Engineering Plaza, between the ATL, Bonderson and Building 192.

Student poster presenters worked alongside faculty members and community partners throughout the summer, resulting in student-faculty co-authored publications and university-industry-and-community collaborations.

Students will present their research findings during the event that is jointly organized by the Bailey College of Science & Mathematics, the College of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Sciences,  the College of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts, the Orfalea College of Business, and the Office of Student Research in collaboration with LSAMP B2B California Central Coast Community College Collaborative (C6).

Forty-six community college researchers – from C6 campus, Allan Hancock College, Cabrillo College, Cuesta College, Monterey Peninsula College, Moorpark College, Oxnard College, Santa Barbara City College and Ventura College – will share their research as part of this event.

Additional support is provided by the Division of Research and CSU Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) in STEM Program at Cal Poly.

Light refreshments will be provided.
Stop by anytime between 1:30-3:30pm to support student research and creative activity at Cal Poly. No RSVP is required.
