After the keynote address, attendees are invited to view student research presentations around campus (see schedule below), student research posters in the Fieldhouse (from 10:30-1:30), and remote student presentations on the Symposium’s Canvas site. As a quick reminder, classes have traditionally been canceled on Symposium day, so the university asks that instructors please not conduct class April 20 so that students can attend the Symposium.

The Scholarship Symposium is an annual event where students who choose to participate present their scholarly work. In the past, It has highlighted the research students have conducted as part of their coursework work via posters, papers, live presentations, or in recorded audio/video form. It provides an opportunity for students to live out the university mission by sharing the fruits of their learning with the community.
