Undergraduate Research Activities
The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is committed to ensuring that students and faculty mentors are minimally impacted by the disruption of class instruction due to the coronavirus. Below are updates; please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
Best Practices for Research
The Research Compliance division of the Office of Research has put together general guidelines for research at KSU at this time. Please read this page carefully and direct questions to those staff members (contact information for them can be found here).
The Council on Undergraduate Research has assembled resources for faculty and students regarding undergraduate research in the time of coronavirus. For more information, click here. KSU is an enhanced institutional member of CUR, which means that all faculty, staff, and administrators at KSU can access members-only information for free by activating their institutional membership).
Undergraduate Researchers on Campus (Summer 2020)
In order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of individuals in our community, undergraduates should not enter any Kennesaw State University facility to conduct research without prior approval. Faculty who wish to apply for an exception to conduct on-campus research with undergraduate researchers during Summer 2020 should complete the form here.
Student Travel to Conferences
All university-sponsored travel is canceled until further notice. Students who were planning to attend a conference should cancel all travel arrangements immediately. If you are using funding from internal or external sources (e.g., department funding, funding from a faculty member's grant), please contact the appropriate unit to learn more about how to cancel travel arrangements and receive any refunds if possible.
The Symposium of Student Scholars
The Symposium of Student Scholars took place from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on April 16 via Microsoft Teams, a virtual “meeting” platform/app. There were over 160 sessions – each 15 minutes in length. Presenters were assigned unique access codes and timeslots for their virtual presentations that took place in different “rooms.” The schedule and access codes for the presentations are included in the symposium program found online as PDF and Excel files.
