36th Annual CSU Student Research Competition April 29 & April 30, 2022 hosted by San Francisco State University (Link: )


The California State University Systemwide Student Research Competition is an annual event that brings together scholars from the 23 campuses of our California State University system. The competition showcases undergraduate and graduate research, scholarship, and creative works by recognizing outstanding student accomplishments. Undergraduate and graduate student participants from all disciplines are judged by experts for their oral presentations and written abstracts

Our central goal is to ensure that all students and alumni have the tools and access to opportunities necessary to make intentional and interconnected decisions about their academic, leadership, and career goals at every stage of student life, from their first-year experience through graduate studies and beyond.

Our mission is therefore threefold:

  • To foster strong partnerships with employers, academic departments, and the university community
  • To advance career development, preparation, and professional opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students and alumni by providing comprehensive services, resources and programming
  • To offer academic excellence in equitable and inclusive graduate or professional education
