Student Symposium on Research,
Scholarship and Creative Activity
The Annual Cal State L.A. Student Symposium on Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity is held each year to highlight student accomplishments and to provide a local forum for our students to gain experience in delivering presentations before an audience. The event is sponsored by ORAD, the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, and The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.
The Symposium presentations are evaluated by judges, and 10 local winners will be selected to represent Cal State L.A. in the Statewide CSU Student Research Competition, where they will be eligible for cash prizes. Students can participate in the University Symposium in two ways - by delivering a 10-minute oral presentation or by exhibiting a poster presentation. The subsequent statewide competition is limited to oral presentations. Please note that poster presentations can be conducted in ways appropriate for documenting the discipline, such as video, recordings, slides, and CDs, as well as posters. Previous winners have come from a cross-section of departments representing all six colleges, and their topics have ranged from projects in art, literary criticism, and history to descriptions of scientific research, musical compositions, and curricular innovations.
