The 17th Annual USF St. Petersburg campus Student Research Symposium was originally scheduled to be held on April 16th 2020. Due to the Coronavirus, the symposium was transformed into a virtual event hosted in the USF St. Petersburg campus digital archive. Students' research efforts are represented by digital posters as well as many multimedia presentations. The Symposium is co-sponsored and produced by the USF St. Petersburg campus Office of Research, the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library, USF St. Petersburg campus Graduate Studies, and the USF St. Petersburg campus Honors Program.

Please view the video below from Dr. Tadlock, Regional Chancellor of USF St. Petersburg, introducing the 2020 Student Research Symposium.
