Student Research Day
UFV Student Research Day is an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to showcase their faculty-supervised research projects to the wider UFV community. The event takes place at the end of Winter semester (March-April) each year.
Students participate by designing a research poster covering their project's objectives, methodologies, and conclusions.
Posters are scored by a panel of UFV faculty researchers. Students with the top-scoring posters in roughly 11 categories receive a prize cheque in recognition of their scholarship, while all participants leave with a substantive product they can use for their CV, conferences, or other poster competitions.
Faculty Microlectures & Publication Celebration
Each Winter semester, we invite members of UFV faculty to take part in the UFV Micro-Lecture Series by presenting a "snapshot" of their research in two minutes or less. This fast-paced, engaging event is not only fun to watch — it highlights the interdisciplinary nature of UFV’s work, excites students about research, and exposes faculty to the scholarly work of colleagues in other disciplines.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the last micro-lecture event on February 26, 2020. Due to Covid-19, the next faculty micro-lectures will be held in Winter 2022.
UFV's Faculty Publication Celebration takes place after faculty micro-lectures every other year. In lieu of an in-person event for 2021, UFV professors with scholarly work published within the last two years (peer-reviewed journal articles, books or book chapters, juried exhibitions, etc.) have their work featured in an online exhibit that will remain up through Winter 2023.
Undergraduate Research Excellence Awards
Each year, Undergraduate Research Excellence (URE) Awards are presented to UFV students who have conducted high-level research as part of the UFV Work Study program, as research assistants, or for an outstanding course project. UFV Departments/Schools nominate their top research students near the end of Winter semester, while additional awards are available for the best:
