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 Honors & Scholars Programs, but all UNI students are eligible to participate.

Listed above are the poster presentations from the 2020 event which was cancelled due to COVID-19. Even though the 2020 event was cancelled, students still had an opportunity to archive their research in UNI ScholarWorks. The most downloaded poster from 2020 is , "Perceptions of the police: The role of need for cognition and numeracy," by Carolyn Pham (2020) with 67 global downloads.
