2016-2017 Events

The CSUSB Student Research Competition is an annual event that gives students the opportunity to gain valuable experience presenting their scholarly work in an academic competition. Students present their undergraduate or graduate research to a panel of judges, who rank each participant. The highest ranking students are selected to represent CSUSB at the state-wide CSU Research Competition. The 2018 CSUSB competition will be held on Friday, February 23rd.

The CSU Student Research Competition is an annual systemwide competition among all of the California State Universities; each CSU sends a delegation of students to compete. Presentations from all disciplines are invited, and both graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to attend. The 2017 competition will be held at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, April 28-29.

The 2017 Book Launch will be held April 27th in the Pine Room, Lower Commons, from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
