UTEP and the Campus Office of Undergraduate Research Initiatives (COURI) will hold the Summer 2016 COURI Symposium on Aug. 6, featuring 117 undergraduate students from UTEP and other local, national and international universities presenting their research, scholarly and creative projects. This event is open to the public and is a great opportunity to learn about the research students are conducting at UTEP. The students will present their work in disciplines as diverse as engineering, science, the arts and the humanities.

The symposium will take place from 10 a.m. -4 p.m. at the Undergraduate Learning Center on campus.

The symposium also will include a keynote address by Lydia Villa-Komaroff, Ph.D., a renowned scientist and science administrator who has held positions at MIT, Harvard University and the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and who has been a leader in advocating for the advancement of women and minorities in science.


    The UTEP Public Information Office can assist media personnel with interview requests to speak with University administrators, faculty expert sources, or students; or to arrange campus visits for photography / videography shoots.
