The Office of Undergraduate Research and the University Libraries have teamed up to highlight undergraduate research at The University of Toledo.

“Poster presentations of research conducted this past year will be held in the Carlson Library concourse on the Main Campus December 1 through the 11,” said Dr. Tom Kvale, director of undergraduate research. “We invite the campus community to stop by and learn our about student’s research and encourage guests to interact and ask questions.”

The posters will be on display through Dec. 11.

“Undergraduate research allows students to learn and experience the methodologies, tools and techniques used in research. In addition, students acquire knowledge in an academic field that transcends the classroom and strengthens their critical thinking and problem solving skills,” Kvale added. “It’s great to see out students apply theories to real-life situations.”

Faculty also gain from undergraduate research by creating strong connections with students through one-on-one mentoring, aiding students in contributing new knowledge to a field, and staying current in research and developments within a discipline.

The Office of Undergraduate Research serves as a central resource for undergraduate research opportunities and showcases undergraduates research accomplishment. The Office of Undergraduate Research will celebrate its 10th anniversary in May.
