The 2008 Spring Undergraduate Research Forum (SURF) will be held on April 29 as part of Celebrate Week.
The Spring Undergraduate Research Forum (SURF) at Elon University showcases student research and provides students the opportunity to present their research to a faculty and student audience. Undergraduate research involves faculty collaboration with students as a part of faculty scholarship or course-based work where students are introduced first-hand to the scholarly enterprise as participating contributors. Students have an opportunity to enhance their academic experience through scholarly work and presentations as a part of an intellectual community. Last year, over 120 students presented work in over 100 individual oral presentations, posters and special panels. These presentations represented 70 faculty mentors in 23 different departments.
