The 21st annual Posters-at-the-Capitol on March 2, 2023, will feature 14 University of Kentucky undergraduate students whose research addresses topics with important implications for issues in Kentucky, including community health, agricultural sustainability, renewable energy and public health and safety.
Posters-at-the-Capitol is hosted collaboratively by Eastern Kentucky University, Kentucky Community and Technical College System, Kentucky State University, Morehead State University, Murray State University, Northern Kentucky University, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville and Western Kentucky University to showcase the experience of undergraduate students engaged in research through high-quality poster displays at the state legislature. This year’s event will have more than 100 student representatives from across the state displaying the results of their research and scholarly work.
“Posters-at-the-Capitol provides a distinct opportunity for undergraduate research in the Commonwealth to be celebrated and to demonstrate for key stakeholders the importance that these endeavors can have in solving issues that face Kentucky, the nation and our world," said Chad Risko, faculty director of the UK Office of Undergraduate Research. "The students representing the University of Kentucky exemplify very well the impact that our undergraduates have across a broad range of disciplines.”
With unique research projects on display, Posters-at-the-Capitol enables those responsible for higher education funding in Kentucky to see the important role undergraduate research plays in the education of our students. Students learn more about the political process and how to advocate for undergraduate research at the local and state governmental level.
