Celebrating student research, scholarship, and creative activities

The next Student Research Symposium will be held on March 4 and 5, 2022 - and registration is now open through January 21!

SRS is a public forum where SDSU students present their research, scholarship, and creative activities. The symposium is a two-day event, occurring each spring semester, that recognizes the outstanding scholarly accomplishments of SDSU students. It is a great way to learn about all the wonderful projects of our graduate and undergraduate students

“The Student Research Symposium is a great opportunity for our students to highlight their research, scholarship and creative activities. Their work shows dedication, insight and remarkable adaptability,” Hala Madanat, interim vice president for research and innovation, said in 2021.

On the Right Path

“The judges said they could see my work being applied in real life and having meaningful change. It reassured me that I am on the right path," says 2021 SRS participant Sofia Bianconi.

Bianconi was one of nearly 300 students who participated in SRS, which took place virtually March 19-20. Nearly 175 faculty, staff, alumni and community members participated as judges and moderators.
