Undergraduate Research Week  showcases and celebrates undergraduate student research and creative projects. Open to all UCLA undergraduates engaged in research and creative projects, the week provides opportunities for students to present their work to the campus and the broader community.

Research Poster Day is a joint collaboration with our colleagues in the Undergraduate Research Center- Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. Taking place in Pauley Pavillion, Research Poster Day 2019 showcased the research of over 1000 undergraduate students across all majors.
