LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 21, 2013) — Fifteen undergraduate researchers from the University of Kentucky have been selected to present at the 2013 Posters-at-the-Capitol event today at the state Capitol in Frankfort, Ky. This event will host more than 200 student representatives from across the state displaying the results of their research and scholarly or creative work.

 

"Posters-at-the-Capitol is a very competitive program," said Diane Snow, director of the UK Office of Undergraduate Research. "So we are very proud of our undergraduate student researchers! In addition to having the opportunity to present their work, these students also have an excellent opportunity to educate those who are making important decisions about expenditures in Kentucky and issues that affect Kentuckians."

 

Posters-at-the-Capitol is a collaborative program where students from each of Kentucky's eight public universities and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System present the results of research they have conducted as part of their college experience before the state legislature.

 

"The University of Kentucky is deeply committed to a culture of undergraduate research because of the profound impact it has on learning and the inherent value it brings to the Commonwealth of Kentucky," said UK President Eli Capilouto. "By engaging in innovative research activities and inspiring a generation of thinkers, pioneers and inventors, we position ourselves to address our state’s most intractable problems and create a better future for all Kentuckians."
