Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol is a UM System-wide event in Jefferson City that demonstrates the unique opportunities students have to participate with faculty in undergraduate research at the University of Missouri.
Selection of Undergraduate ambassadors is based on geographical distribution, the relevance of the project to the state of Missouri and the overall quality of the project. Invitations are made by the Office of Academic Support during the fall semester.
Students are invited to assemble in the capitol building rotunda in Jefferson City to display research posters and to speak with legislators about their research and how it is significant in addressing the needs of society. The University of Missouri System is seeking nominations from faculty members for undergraduates to serve as Ambassadors to share their university research experiences with state lawmakers in Jefferson City for Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol during spring semester 2019.
