In lieu of the student poster session and creative exhibition traditionally offered during the week, undergraduate and graduate students were invited to develop five- to eight-minute video presentations, enabling participants to showcase their work to a broader audience. Presentations will be submitted over the next two weeks and are viewable as they are submitted at the Research Days MediaHub channel.

Each day will showcase work from the following fields:

  • April 12: Arts and Humanities

  • April 13: Education, Business and Social Sciences

  • April 14: Life Sciences

  • April 15: Physical Sciences

  • April 16: Engineering

Sixty-five graduate students are registered to submit presentations. Two $400 awards will be given each day by the Office of Graduate Studies to the top presentations. More than 230 undergraduate students have entered presentations, and their prizes, valued at $250, will be given by the colleges to top presentations from students majoring in those respective colleges.
