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 new alumni (within one year of graduation), you can apply to present a project or share research or creative work.


Apply to participate

Do you have a project that you're particularly proud of, some research you'd like to share with others or a creative piece that shines? Apply to participate in Student Research Day where you can showcase your achievements and share your insights.

Current students and new alumni (within one year of graduation) from all programs are encouraged to participate. Because space is limited, an adjudication process may be used to ensure equal representation across disciplines.

Submission guidelines

 

The application form and submission guidelines are updated each year when the call for papers opens in February.
