Inquiry Week

Inquiry Week at Rice University coincides with the Council for Undergraduate Research's Undergraduate Research Week (URW) and celebrates the accomplishments of undergraduates in research, design, and creative work. Begun in 2018, Inquiry Week incorporated two long-standing events that celebrate student inquiry, the Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium and the George R. Brown School of Engineering Design Showcase and Poster Session, and introduced many new events that highlight the diversity of student work and the value of faculty-student engagement.

While the 2021 schedule is still developing, we are planning to continue the tradition of Inquiry Week including the Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium.

We also celebrate National Undergraduate Research Week! Abstract submissions for the 2021 National Conference on Undergraduate Research are due December 1 (November 1 for early decision).

Past inquiry Week events include the following:
