Sponsored by the Research and Grants Center, the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Committee, and The Honors College, 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 for graduate students preparing a master's thesis or doctoral dissertation.  Students interested in the Three Minute Thesis are also eligible to submit poster abstracts.   Visual and performing artists are also encouraged to participate.  A separate room for musical or drama performances will be provided if there are faculty or students interested in participating.  The award ceremony will take place during the luncheon, which is free to all participants.  The poster hall will be open at 9:00 a.m. - posters must be set up by noon; however, presenters will not be required to be present until the poster session begins at 1:00.  We will not be providing judges for the poster/oral presentation events this year; however, attendees and participants will be able to participate in People's Choice Awards for oral presentations and posters.  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 applicable electronic submission form.  If you choose to submit both an oral presentation and a poster, you must submit a form for each presentation. This form should be used for performances and visual arts exhibits as well.  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 Bryan Jones at  Please be sure that all information is spelled correctly as this information will not be retyped. All abstracts should be written for a lay audience. Submissions are due by Tuesday, April 9, 2019.

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.
