Be a Presenter
Students are encouraged to present on any topic of interest in their academic studies as an oral, poster, or ePosterBoard presentation. For some, this may be traditional, scientific research. For others, this could include learning and discoveries in areas such as comparative literature, religion, mathematics, public health, education, and more.
In addition, the presentation topic could be derived from:
- Thesis research
- Creative work in the visual and performing arts
- Course assignment
- Independent study
- Community service
- Study abroad experience
Research in-progress may be presented so that feedback may guide or improve a project.
