Abstract:

The Undergraduate Research Center (URC) collection contains programs, annual reports, and other materials related to the URC and the Minnesota State University, Mankato Undergraduate Research Symposium. The collection also includes materials related to Minnesota Conference of Undergraduate Creative Activity and Posters at St. Paul, the two undergraduate research presentation opportunities hosted by the Minnesota State system.

Historical Note:

The Undergraduate Research Conference began in 1999 at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The Conference was established to allow undergraduate students to share scholarly work in a professional manner. In 2012 the URC realigned and the Undergraduate Research Center was created and the conference was renamed as the Undergraduate Research Symposium. In addition to the Symposium, the URC supports student research through grant and mentor opportunities, internships and The Journal of Undergraduate Research (JUR). JUR is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed online journal that is published annually to promote undergraduate research at Minnesota State Mankato.

In 2012 the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System (MnSCU) began their own undergraduate conference, the Minnesota Conference of Undergraduate Scholarly and Creative Activity. Today, the Minnesota State system offers undergraduates two opportunities to present their scholarly work. They can present at the Posters at St. Paul and/or the Minnesota Conference of Undergraduate Scholarly and Creative Activity.
Minnesota State University, Mankato was the first host of the MnSCU conference.
