2 days, 4 hours, endless opportunity . . .


FREE and open to the public. All are welcome and invited to come to learn about research.

The uSOAR 2022 LIVE event will highlight: 

  • The Research Process
  • Faculty Research Experiences
  • Research and Leadership Opportunities
  • Exemplary student research projects from 2021/2022

Along with spotlighting the research process and student research, uSOAR will act as a springboard for future student research projects. The symposium is designed to educate, nurture, and inspire Skyline College students to grow and challenge themselves in academic commitment and pursuit of rigorous, creative, community-based, and culturally relevant scholarship.

What are the Presentation Formats?

Students present their work either in 15-minute formal panel presentations chaired by faculty members, in poster form, or in exhibition or performance.

The conference seeks to replicate professional and scholarly meetings, and many undergraduate scholars participate in uSOAR as a "first conference" experience, going on to present their work at national professional meetings.


We are excited to celebrate the outstanding work and achievements of our amazing faculty and  undergraduate researchers and foster important exchanges and dialogue between faculty and students by hosting a LIVE symposium! WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT uSOAR!
