Symposium for Student Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity


The Symposium for Student Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity is traditionally a single-day event, being held on Thursday, April 18, 2024, that is designed to showcase undergraduate and graduate student work. The Symposium will be a face-to-face event this year.  More details will be provided to students and mentors after the abstract submission process is complete.

Students from all academic fields are eligible to participate, along with a faculty or staff sponsor. Students are asked to provide a 300-word abstract/summary describing the project. Abstracts must be reviewed and approved by the sponsor before being submitted. Authors of these abstracts will have the choice of creating a poster, making a 10-15 minute oral presentation, or creating an art exhibit, demonstration, or music, dance, or spoken word performance.
