Student Research Symposium

Twice a year, a number of our students participate in the Student Research Symposium with submissions of original research, reviews, scholarly essays, creative writing, performance, film and original artwork. Our students may submit a proposal for one presentation, performance or poster to showcase during the symposium. During the symposium, outstanding student work is recognized with three awards for excellence in undergraduate student research. To view the program from our most recent symposium, click here.
