Rice University Center for Civic Leadership

Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium (RURS)

On behalf of this year’s Steering Committee and the Center for Civic Leadership, welcome to the Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium (RURS) webpage. RURS will be held on Wednesday, April 10th, as part of Inquiry Week.

Now in its seventeenth year, RURS is the premier event for undergraduates across all disciplines to present their research projects and compete for recognition from academic schools and research centers at Rice. This event would not be possible without the efforts of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students from Rice and the Houston community who have graciously volunteered their time to evaluate the student presentations. If you have any questions, email us at rurs@rice.edu.
