Tied for Most Total Awards at CSU Research Competition

Cal Poly tied with San Jose, East Bay, San Francisco and Sonoma for most awards.

Five Cal Poly student research teams received first- or second-place recognition at the 2024 California State University (CSU) Student Research Competition held on the San Luis Obispo campus April 26-27.

Hundreds of students from across the 23-campus CSU system competed in 10 categories at the 38th iteration of the statewide contest: Behavioral, Social Sciences and Public Administration; Biological and Agricultural Sciences; Business, Economics and Hospitality Management; Creative Arts and Design; Education; Engineering and Computer Science; Health, Nutrition and Clinical Sciences; Humanities and Letters; Physical and Mathematical Sciences; and Interdisciplinary.

Student researchers included individual participants as well as teams. Cal Poly students represented the Bailey College of Science and Mathematics, College of Liberal Arts and College of Engineering.

“Over the two days, CSU students presented 200 projects,” said Jane Lehr, Cal Poly director of the Office of Student Research. “We are grateful to the 61 jurors, the 23 session moderators, and all the staff and volunteers who supported this effort — including folks in the Cal Poly Office of Student Research and the Office of the Vice President of Research.”
