The 19th Annual CSUN Student Research and Creative Works Symposium was on Friday, February 13th. The purpose of the symposium is to highlight student achievement and to inform the campus community of the excellent quality and diversity of research and creative activity being conducted by undergraduate and graduate students across all academic disciplines. The symposium format permits a 10 minute oral presentation or a poster presentation. There are separate undergraduate and graduate divisions for each of the following categories: Behavioral and Social Sciences; Biological and Agricultural Sciences; Business and Economics; Creative Arts and Design; Education; Engineering and Computer Science; Health, Nutrition, and Clinical Sciences; Humanities and Letters; and Physical and Mathematical Sciences.

Students make either an oral or poster presentation. Based on the recommendation of the judges, cash awards are presented to the outstanding oral presenter and runner-up in each category for both the graduate and undergraduate divisions. For the poster session, a cash award is given to the outstanding undergraduate and graduate student.  Ten of the student winners will go on to represent CSUN at the 29th Annual California State University Student Research Competition.
