Symposium of Academic Research (SOAR)

The Symposium Of Academic Research or SOAR (formerly known as SyBER) is a research-based event that is held annually.

SOAR consists of Westcliff University alumni, faculty, and students who share a passion for innovation and collaboration, and who come together on-campus and online to present their preliminary and completed research on relevant topics.

Employers highly value the ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively in presentations, and Westcliff University is excited to provide this valuable opportunity to hone presentation skills, and be able to network and share research with others.



Congratulations to all of our SOAR 2022 Winners!
