Kansas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol

Students presenting in the Rotunda

Annually, this event showcases the work of up to 40 Kansas undergraduate student projects representing each of the state’s eight public 4-year institutions. The purpose of this event is to demonstrate the unique opportunities undergraduate students have to participate with faculty members in research at all state institutions. This event will also emphasize higher education’s role in developing educated citizens and preparing a workforce with the necessary skills to further the economic growth of the state.

The event typically takes place in Spring, and was held March 1, 2024. This page will be updated annually to promote the event.

Participants convey their experience and enthusiasm to state representatives, senators, and other state officials in a poster session. Projects from a broad range of disciplines are showcased - especially posters that relate to the state of Kansas and issues important to the state legislature (e.g. education, health, agriculture, aviation, biotechnology, energy, transportation, manufacturing, environment, and social services). Up to 5 projects are selected from each Kansas Board of Regents institution.
