Annual Undergraduate and Graduate Scholars Forums Scheduled

Posted on 11/13/2015 8:26:57 AM

It’s time to prepare for the annual Undergraduate and Graduate Scholars Forums.  As with previous years, the events will be held during Research Appreciation Week, April 3-9, 2016. The Undergraduate Scholars Forum will be on April 5, 2016, and the Graduate Scholars Forum will be on April 6, 2016.

Showcase your students’ original research/scholarship work with your mentorship and endorsement. 

Your assistance benefits the student by providing:

  • valuable experiences to students working with you on scholarship activities;
  • professional experience in research presentation skills;
  • networking opportunities with students having similar interests;
  • opportunities to compete for College recognition and prizes.
Faculty sponsors also win by gaining:
  • assistance in your research endeavors, while teaching valuable skills to your students;
  • acknowledgement for your mentorship and guidance;
  • scholarly growth in your discipline;
  • service experience that benefits your students and the university;
  • a chance to provide students with a unique opportunity and future collaboration.

As we head toward the Thanksgiving break, please start thinking about these events and how you and your students can get involved.
