One of the highlights of the Spring semester at CSI has always been the Undergraduate Conference on Research, Scholarship, and Performance -- for the past 18 years the Center for the Arts has been filled with the excitement of students and mentors sharing the extraordinary projects they have worked on together. While we cannot have an “in-person” conference this year, we’re delighted to let you know that the virtual conference will take place on Thursday, April 30th 2020, the original conference date, and will run from approximately 12:30 – 4:30 pm. There will be five tracks of presentations that will run concurrently on Zoom Webinar, with each student scheduled to give a live 3-4 minute summary, with 4 minutes for questions from attendees via the chat feature. Please visit our virtual conference page for detailed information.
The upcoming annual conference on research, scholarship and performance marks our nineteenth year! This year it will be virtual. 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.
