In light of the transition to online instruction for the remainder of the semester and the need to avoid meetings involving large numbers of people, we regretfully announce that the Undergraduate Conference on Research, Scholarship and Performance will not take place as an in-person event on April 30 as planned.
We know that this event is one of the highlights of the academic year, recognizing both our students’ achievements and the mentoring of CSI faculty across the College. We are looking at alternative ways to document and acknowledge this work, possibly through a virtual conference and/or an online publication of abstracts and posters.
We have extended the deadline for submission of abstracts to Wednesday, March 25.
Please keep checking our website for further information.
Important Dates to Remember:
March 25, 2020 – Application Submission Deadline
TBA – Final Poster Submission Deadline
Workshops and Assistance:
March 24, 2020 / 2:30-3:30pm – Creating an Effective Poster: Workshop
March 26, 2020 / 2:30-4:30pm – Poster Prep: Drop-In Lab Assistance
We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Michael Cavagnero, Divisional Dean of Science and Technology.
Title : “Dancing with Truth: How College Can Change Your Life and Why You Should Let It”
The upcoming annual conference on research, scholarship and performance marks our nineteenth year! The event highlights scholarly and creative projects by students majoring in all disciplines, showcasing academic excellence through student-faculty collaboration, offering a rewarding and educational experience for all.
The conference is open to the entire campus community and friends of the College. Students are especially encouraged to attend – this is a great opportunity to discover, cultivate and inspire new interests and endeavors.
The major goals of the conference are:
- Recognition of undergraduate research and creative work as highly valued teaching and learning experiences at the College.
- Celebration of academic excellence.
