The Undergraduate Research Committee (URC) at Dixie State University promotes and celebrates undergraduate research. Our students, guided by faculty mentors, engage in research on campus and attend undergraduate research conferences each year. The URC provides a community and platform for those who would like to share their research, to attend undergraduate conferences, or to present their research or creative work in an academic setting.

Each April, DSU hosts a student Research Day, celebrating and showcasing showcases student research and creative work. Students from all disciplines are invited to apply to present their work in a scholarly setting. Presentations may include oral presentations, posters, and performances. 

We encourage all of our students to participate in independent research projects guided by faculty mentors. The committee will support both faculty and students in developing undergraduate research activities.
