SOARS Virtual Conference

About The Event

The Showcase of Osprey Advancements in Research and Scholarship (SOARS) is an annual interdisciplinary conference at the University of North Florida (UNF) in which undergraduate and graduate students showcase their research and creative projects. Research projects are usually presented in poster format, but we also work with students who present in multimedia formats. SOARS is a welcoming environment in which students can share their work, which will be in various stages of development.

Each year, we encourage people from across the university and throughout the broader Jacksonville community to attend SOARS. As a virtual conference, SOARS 2022 can cast an even wider net, potentially reaching a global audience.

We have the SOARS Conference program available (as a PDF).

A Few Words

From The Director

SOARS, a highlight of UNF Research Week, is organized and sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) with graduate projects sponsored by the Graduate School. In this third year as a virtual event, SOARS continues to serve as a platform for highlighting research activities of our undergraduate and graduate students.

We gratefully acknowledge and thank Kaitlyn Minnicks, the Coordinator of the Office of Undergraduate Research, and Andy Rush, Course Media Developer with the UNF Center for Instruction and Research Technology (CIRT) Creative Team, who worked nimbly and creatively to make SOARS 2022 happen.

We hope you enjoy the 2022 Showcase of Osprey Advancements in Research and Scholarship – SOARS!
