Posters-at-the-Capitol Starter Kit

Interested in starting a similar program in your state? Here are sample documents that should be enough to get you on your way!

Posters-at-the-Capitol, an event hosted collaboratively by Kentucky's public universities and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, is intended to help members of Kentucky’s legislature and the Governor better understand the importance of involving undergraduates in research, scholarly, and creative work.  Most of the sample documents below, posted to help you start your own Posters program, are taken from 2006. Each year, changes are made to materials, but these documents should give you a sampling of how to get your program off the ground. Good luck!
