All Cal State East Bay student researchers are invited to register for the Student Research Symposium 2021. This year the symposium will be ran virtually. Students will prepare 3-minute videos and upload them to Youtube. More info to come next week(February 15-20) about the videos. Presentations are invited from all fields and should describe a scholarly project undertaken in the past year.  Scholars and faculty mentors are responsible for designing a presentation appropriate for the Scholar's disciplines(the CSR defers to the faculty mentor's disciplinary expertise on presentation format).  We will have more info posted soon on what these presentations will entail.

  • Each student/project team will upload their own 3-min project video (one video per   project) as an "unlisted" video and share the link with the CSR (video registration link forthcoming in a later announcement). "Unlisted" means the video will not come up in any YouTube or Google (or other search engine) search. Videos can only be accessed via a direct hyperlink.
  • Once the Week of Scholarship is completed (end of the day Friday April 23), all students are welcome to delete their unlisted videos off of YouTube.
  • CSR will organize and present all project hyperlinks and brief descriptions into the Symposium's digital program, which will be shared with our Cal State East Bay community.
  • Cal State East Bay community will be encouraged to engage with the project videos throughout the week through the YouTube video comment section associated with each respective project video (e.g., ask questions, provide comments & feedback to the student(s), share relevant info or links).
  • Scholars will be required to check in on their video (to check for and reply to comments) at least 3x during the week of Scholarship.

Verbal Presentations

We will not run these in person this year. We will update with more info once confirmed.

Ten student research projects are selected every year, to compete in the CSU Student Research Competition.  They all will be creating a 8-minute video. These will be posted in the virtual program.
