State Capitol Building
With unique research projects on display, Posters-at-the-Capitol helps to increase understanding of the important role undergraduate research plays in the education of our students among those responsible for higher education funding in Kentucky. This annual event showcases faculty-mentored scholarly posters by undergraduate students from each state-funded university in the Commonwealth. During the one-day event, nearly 200 students present to their peers and to those responsible for crafting higher education policy in Kentucky. Each school may bring up to twelve posters with two student representatives per poster.
12:00 - 12:30 Opening Remarks (Rotunda)
12:30 - 1:30 Individual School Photos with Invited Legislators (Senate Staircase)
1:30 - 2:30 Poster Showcase (Mezzanine)
2:30 - 3:30 Select Student Presentations (Rotunda)
3:30 - 3:35 Closing/Wrap-Up (Rotunda)
Providing undergraduates with the opportunity to engage in scholarly, research, and creative work is important to our students' educational experience and professional development. We encourage faculty to have their students participate in Posters-at-the-Capitol to help those in Kentucky who fund higher education understand why these experiences are so important. If you are an undergraduate we urge you to tell your story to your hometown and university legislators so that other Kentucky students can enjoy and benefit from the kind of experience you have had.
The University of Louisville can send up to 12 students and their posters for this event.
