Make a gift to support undergraduate research and the NAU Undergraduate Symposium

At NAU, we are proud to have a tradition of excellence that enriches lives and creates opportunities for our students.   

One of the incredible experiences we offer students each year is presenting at the NAU Undergraduate Symposium.  The Undergraduate Symposium showcases student research and creative activity in the arts, business, education, humanities, and the sciences.  The symposium features over 700 student presentations from all disciplines and attracts more than 3,000 attendees from the NAU and Flagstaff communities. 


This year is the fifteenth year that all NAU colleges will come together to celebrate this university-wide event on Friday, April 26, from 9 am – 4 pm in the High Country Conference Center, Drury, and 1899 Ballroom. 

Student presentations will feature: 

  • cooking demonstrations by students in Hotel and Restaurant Management,
  • art creations and performances by the College of Arts and Letters,
  • oral presentations,
  • engineering capstone projects like the Collegiate Wind Team, and
  • numerous poster presentations showcasing student accomplishments.

Participation in this type of professional conference encourages students’ development of critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication via research and prepares them for a bright future.

Your donation supports student researchers

Every dollar donated goes directly to supporting our students presenting at the NAU Undergraduate Symposium or paying wages to undergraduates completing independent research with a mentor. Your support will ensure that we move toward providing this high-impact, hands-on learning experience to all Lumberjacks.
