2022 Student Research Forum – Congratulations to winners and participants!

Posted on: Apr 26, 2022

The annual CUE Student Research Forum and Poster Competition, hosted on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, was a success!

The Forum showcased the accomplishments of both students and faculty members, and the event featured 44 posters describing recent research work by CUE students. 

Student poster presentations in two categories (undergraduate and graduate) were judged by panels of faculty members and instructors.

Student-presenters were evaluated on the content and design of their posters and abstracts; the content of their presentations; their responses to judges’ questions; and their overall performance.

We offer sincere thanks to all of the volunteer judges for their support of this year’s event!

The welcome booklet and abstracts for this year’s presentations are also available online.
