Student Research Day

Students at research day

Community-based research, art and design creations, original compositions, scientific experiments—it's time to celebrate our students' achievements. Each spring, students from across campus showcase their best work at Student Research Day.

Students, alumni, employees, the general public—everyone is invited to this full-day event where they can speak to students about their scholarly and creative accomplishments. If you are current student or a recent graduate (within one year of graduation), you can apply to present a project or share research or creative work.
