Established in 2011, Dixie State Undergraduate Research encourages all students to participate in scholarly research and creative projects. The Undergraduate Research Committee is comprised of faculty, students and interns who promote research opportunities, mentor students who want to conduct research, and organize events where students may share their work with academic communities, including local, state and national forums.

Dixie Forum is a lecture series designed to introduce the St. George community and DSU students, faculty and staff to diverse ideas and personalities while widening their worldviews via a 50-minute presentation. The weekly series will continue following DSU’s Spring Break (March 9-13) on Tuesday, March 17, with a presentation entitled “Cultural Understanding Through the Arts” by noted Vietnamese musician and filmmaker Tinh Mahoney.
