Spring 2016 Research Fair
Spring 2016 Research Fair
April 12-13, 2016
Celebrate student research and creativity
The Spring Research Fair focuses on students, showcasing research and creative accomplishments by UNL undergraduate and graduate students.
Faculty, staff, students, and the public are welcome to attend any events listed on the schedule, and we also encourage you to keep an eye out for #UNLRF on Twitter.
Submit your successes
Because recognizing student successes is at the heart of the Spring Research Fair, we request your assistance in gathering information about graduate and undergraduate student achievements from the last calendar year (2015) to be listed in the Student Awards Booklet. Submit successes by March 18 for inclusion in the booklet.
All sessions will be held in the Nebraska Union, except where indicated.
Agenda is subject to change due to speaker commitments. Please check regularly for the most current schedule.
