Oklahoma Research Day promotes cross-campus and cross-disciplinary research among all institutions of higher learning in the State of Oklahoma. It seeks to encourage networking among researchers and interchange of ideas among those studying and researching in their respective academic discipline.
About Oklahoma Research Day
Oklahoma Research Day is a consortium event coordinated by Oklahoma's Regional Universities. The first Research Day in Oklahoma was held in 1999 and included 233 poster presentations by students and faculty from colleges and universities across Oklahoma. Prior to 2008, Oklahoma Research Day was traditionally held on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma. Starting in 2009 other campuses began to host the event, with Northeastern State University inaugurating this new stage of Oklahoma Research Day's development. Since 2010, Cameron University has accepted the honor of hosting Oklahoma Research Day.
Now in its 13th year, Oklahoma Research Day has grown in numbers and stature. Contributions come from all of Oklahoma's institutions of higher learning, and collaboration with national and international research institutions. The number of poster presentations has grown to more than 660 with more than 1200 students, faculty and guests in attendance. With the goal to continue the tradition of celebrating undergraduate research in Oklahoma, Cameron University will host this year's Oklahoma Research Day.
