Charter

The mission of the Saint Louis Area Undergraduate Research Symposium is to encourage and promote undergraduate research at universities in the Saint Louis area.  We aim to provide a space for  St. Louis area undergraduates interested in research across all disciplines, including the social and physical sciences, biological sciences,  arts, humanities, and engineering to share their projects and accomplishments with their peers in an annual interdisciplinary symposium.  We endeavor to promote excellence in all fields of research by recognizing those undergraduates and faculty mentors who embody the principles of academic rigor, creativity, and insight. The best student presentations are awarded for their excellence in communication and research.  In addition, those faculty members of the participating universities whose contributions best encourage and support undergraduate research are recognized.  In doing so, STLAURS helps stimulate greater interest in independent learning and discovery at the undergraduate level.
