Students interested in participating in the 2021 Arkansas Tech University Undergraduate Research Symposium must submit an abstract or brief description of their project presentation by Monday, March 15.

“We invite all undergraduate students to participate and share their research and scholarship with the university,” said Dr. Nate Chapman, director of undergraduate research and assistant professor of sociology at ATU.

Each abstract or project presentation should be e-mailed as a Microsoft Word document to nchapman1@atu.edu and include the following information:

  • The title of the research project should be typed in capitals at the top of the page. Skip one line and type;
  • Name(s) of the student author(s) and e-mail address(es). Underline the name of the presenter(s);
  • Name(s) of the faculty mentor(s) and e-mail address(es); (if applicable)
  • Name of the department;
  • Skip one line and type the abstract without indentation.

Abstracts should not be more than 300 words and should provide a brief overview of the research (research question, methodology, findings/analysis).

The 2021 ATU Undergraduate Research Symposium is scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 7, in Rothwell Hall room 221.

“During the symposium, presentations will be judged by faculty members from Arkansas Tech University and awards will be presented to the top presentations,” said Chapman. “Faculty are also encouraged to attend the symposium and to ask questions or give constructive feedback to the student presenters.”
