On February 1, 2006, Tennessee joined a dozen other states by exposing state legislators to undergraduate research from across the state through the first-ever Tennessee Posters-at-the- Capitol. Sixty one undergraduate students from six Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) universities and three University of Tennessee campuses will present their research through posters at the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville. Legislators will be encouraged to meet students from their districts and see first-hand the outstanding research being conducted by undergraduates across the state. The Posters-at-the-Capitol project, sponsored by the Tennessee Board of Regents and the University of Tennessee system, and hosted by Middle Tennessee State University, has two goals – to expose legislators to undergraduate researchers and to expose undergraduates to their legislators. The state of Tennessee is the beneficiary of this exciting effort.
