HPU Research and Creativity Symposium

The Next Symposium Will Be Held:

April 10, 2018

High Point University students from all schools, majors, and minors are invited to participate in HPU’s 5th annual Research and Creativity Symposium (High-PURCS). This event will showcase student scholarship in a supportive environment that models a professional venue.

Students may choose to present their work as a poster, oral presentation, brief performance, or exhibit. Projects must be mentored, independent work that reflect originality and creativity and be quality products that went beyond a course assignment.


Congratulations to our 2016-2017
Research Apprentices

Research Rookies is a program for freshman and first semester sophomores who desire to be incorporated into the research and creative works atmosphere of High Point University while still early in their undergraduate careers. Participants have two consecutive semesters to complete a variety of activities. Completing this program earns the title of Research Apprentice and shows students are committed to independent work which will give them an edge later in job interviews or application for graduate or professional schools.

This year we are excited to congratulate six students who have completed the program and have earned the title of Research Apprentice. Apprentices will be recognized at the High-PURCS symposium opening remarks.
