The 4th Annual Creative Activities & Research Symposium will be held in Summer 2018 at the University Library.

The Cal Poly Pomona Creative Activities & Research Symposium (CPP CARS) is an annual event hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research. This event is held in the Summer and provides an opportunity for our undergraduate and graduate students to share their original research, scholarly and creative activities that they have been working on.

This event includes creative activities such as dance performances, poetry reading, and entrepreneurial pitches for budding startups. CARS is a non-competitive symposium.

During the inaugural Symposium, nearly three dozen Cal Poly Pomona students gathered in the University Library and presented their research projects at the CPP CARS. The fields represented in the symposium included humanities, social sciences, engineering, and science. Students and faculty also took part in poetry readings and dance performances.

Since then, entrepreneurs from the Student Innovation Idea Lab have joined CARS to pitch their work from the Summer Accelerator at Demo Day.
