Cal Poly Pomona Student Research Conference

Cal Poly Pomona Student Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities Conferences

The Cal Poly Pomona Student Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities Conference (CPP Student RSCA Conference) is an annual event that provides an opportunity for our undergraduate and graduate students to share their original research, scholarly and creative activities. All disciplines are represented – this is an opportunity to see CPP students at their best. This conference is competitive and ten presentations are selected from the CPP Student RSCA Conference to represent Cal Poly Pomona at the CSU system-wide competition (every May). This conference happens on the first Friday every March. Applications open in late Fall and students are notified by Early Winter of acceptance. There are many ways to participate including the traditional oral and poster presentations but also through performances, displays of artwork, and showcases of prototypes and design projects.

The Undergraduate Research Faculty Advisory Committee, a team of faculty from each college, helps with the planning and organization of the student research conference. The overall event is coordinated through the Office of Undergraduate Research with the help of research program student and staff volunteers. The judges comprise of both CPP alumni and faculty judges.
