Research in the Capitol is a collaborative effort of the honors programs from the University of Northern Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Iowa. In the spring of every year, the three Regents universities send 20 students to provide poster presentations of undergraduate research. The event celebrates how undergraduates learn by doing research in a variety of fields.

This event is hosted by the University Honors Program, but all UNI students are eligible to participate. This year's Research in the Capitol event was held on March 28, 2017.
