Complete Schedule

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 year's Research in the Capitol event, which was scheduled for March 24, 2020, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 situation. Even though the physical event was canceled, students had the opportunity to showcase their research in UNI ScholarWorks.
