The Office of Undergraduate Research provides opportunities for Oberlin students who have conducted research to share their work with the campus and surrounding community through two annual research symposia.

Celebration of Undergraduate Research

The Celebration of Undergraduate Research is a one-day annual conference showcasing the summer research of Oberlin College and Conservatory students. Students present talks and posters about research they conducted during the summer on campus and at various sites around the globe, working with corporations, government agencies, hospitals, museums, non-profit organizations, research institutes, and universities. The Celebration of Undergraduate Research is co-sponsored by the Center for Learning, Education, and Research in the Sciences (CLEAR).

Students present talks about their original, independent or collaborative work conducted for seniors honors, program/departmental capstones, research assistantships, community based projects, private readings, summer research, or course-based research.
