A celebration of student innovation and excellence at Illinois

Welcome to the 2021 Undergraduate Research Week (URW) and its signature event, the 14th annual Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS). Even as the landscape of the Undergraduate Research Week and Symposium remains virtual, we hope you found this online space honored the essence and integrity of our in-person events. This year URW events was a combination of asynchronous and live (virtual) presentations hosted by individual departments, units, and programs, and ran from April 25 through May 1.

We invite you to browse the 2021 URW digital program to view an archive of the many events celebrating undergraduate research at Illinois this year.

Thank you to our 2021 Undergraduate Research Symposium Sponsors:
