Undergraduate research posters related to sustainability and the environment, in all disciplines are welcome! Geography has been under-represented at this event in the past, so please get your abstracts ready!

Abstracts must be submitted by Monday, November 25th through the Symposium web page (the URL will be added HERE by November 6). Please note that the project can be proposed, in-progress, or completed work, and may also include classroom projects by individuals or teams of students.
