The Department of Psychology Undergraduate Research Forum is an opportunity for undergraduate students to showcase their research in the field of psychology. The Research Colloquium is a poster session (similar to the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum) that allows students to display and talk about their work with faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students in the Department of Psychology.
