Sponsored by the Research and Grants Center, the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Committee, and the University Honors Program, Research and Creativity Day is set aside to showcase a wide range of student and faculty research and creative activities.

The morning will begin with oral presentations by undergraduate and graduate students (12 minutes per presentation) and the poster session will take place in the afternoon.  A Three Minute Thesis (3MT) contest will also take place in the morning.  Students interested in the Three Minute Thesis are also eligible to submit poster abstracts.  More information on this event is available at  This year the award ceremony will take place during the luncheon, which is free to all participants.  The poster hall will be open at 10:00 a.m. - posters must be set up by noon; however, presenters will not be required to be present until the poster session begins at 1:30.  We will not be providing judges for the poster/oral presentation events this year.  Departments are encouraged to coordinate their own judging if desired.

If you would like to present either an oral presentation (students only) or a poster (open to faculty and students), please go to the electronic submission form.  If you choose to submit both an oral presentation and a poster, you must submit a form for each presentation.  You will be notified by e-mail within three days of submission that your abstract has been received.  If you are not notified within three days, please contact Pam Fillmore at  Please be sure that all information is spelled correctly as this information will not be retyped.  Submissions are due by Friday, April 15, 2016.

The abstracts will appear in the printed program.  This is an excellent opportunity for faculty and students to share with the campus community their research, scholarly, or creative work.

Electronic Submission Form - abstracts are no longer being accepted - contact the Research and Grants Center if you have any questions.
