Showcase Your Project at CSU
Once a year (in April) all students participating in undergraduate research, service learning, and creative opportunities at Colorado State University are invited to present their work at the Celebrate Undergraduate Research and Creativity (CURC) Showcase.
The Journal of Undergraduate Research (JUR) is a peer-reviewed, undergraduate journal registered with the Library of Congress that accepts submissions of any subject, from any undergraduate institution.
We receive hundreds of submissions for publication every year, from institutions ranging from small liberal arts colleges to international institutions. The review process for publication includes peer, graduate, and faculty referees, ensuring that the Journal publishes competitive material that follows the Journal’s standards for academic, creative, and passionate work. We are always looking for student editors to join our team.
The Multicultural Undergraduate Research, Art and Leadership Symposium (MURALS) exists for students of color in various disciplines to explore and present a research project related to one’s passion or interest. Mentoring, presenting research, networking, and learning about multicultural leadership are four main aspects of the program.
The Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering hosts an annual Engineering Days celebration, “E-Days.” to showcase undergraduate senior design projects. These projects highlight the college’s course-based undergraduate research, which is part of the capstone courses in students’ degree programs.
Showcase Your Project Beyond the CSU Community
The Mountain Scholar Digital Collections of Colorado and Wyoming is an online archive of scholarly work from member institutions. Sound and video recordings as as well as print are accepted. We encourage our undergraduate students to submit their work.
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) maintains lists of journals and poster/presentation opportunities exclusive to undergraduate research and creative inquiry. CSU is an enhanced institutional members, so you can create a user account for free and browse their resources to help you find the right fit for showcasing your project.
Showcase Your Project in Field-Specific Platforms
Your mentor will also have other ideas about how to showcase your project that are specific to your project format and discipline. Common ways may include regional or national events in your field, or field-exclusive publishing or performance platforms.
