The Borderlands Research Institute and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo have teamed up to advance the professional development of undergraduate students through an Undergraduate Research and Mentorship Program. Over the past year, the Undergraduate Research and Mentorship Program supported 12 undergraduate students completing independent research projects under the supervision of BRI graduate students and staff.

Results of these research projects will be presented at BRI’s Second Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on September 23, 2016 at the Turner Range Animal Science Center on the campus of Sul Ross State University. The symposium is open to the public, and will be held from 8:00am – Noon, and followed by a free lunch for attendees.
