IUP was represented by three student/faculty teams at the ninth annual Undergraduate Research at the Capitol event, which was held at the State Capitol Building in Harrisburg on October 18, 2011.

The event’s mission is to bring together students, faculty, and legislators to share the experiences of students engaged in research scholarship at Pennsylvania colleges and universities.
