The WVSGC office will have a table at the Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol this year. Be sure to stop by!


It is increasingly important that the West Virginia Higher Education community work to ensure that those in State government, who provide substantial funding for higher education, have a clear understanding of the programs they fund and why these programs are important. Scholarly activities (undergraduate research and creative endeavors) must be among those programs that members of the West Virginia State Legislature understand if it is to continue to enjoy support.

For many disciplines, scholarly activities are an essential component of the university educational experience. Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of these activities than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. February 7, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the Sixteenth Annual Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol (URDC) will take place in the West Virginia State Capitol Rotunda. This event features posters on research/creative endeavors from student attendees of colleges and universities around the state and will help members of the West Virginia State Legislature and Executive Branch understand the importance of undergraduate scholarly activities by providing members with an opportunity to speak directly with the students whom these programs impact. Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol is sponsored by West Virginia State University, West Virginia University, Marshall University, University of Charleston and the WV Higher Education Policy Commission.
