With the support of their faculty advisors, graduate and undergraduate students present research findings in this campus-wide event at the Memorial Student Center. While most research dissemination occurs through posters, there is also an opportunity for oral, multi-media and other presentation forms. The main purpose of this event is to disseminate research and celebrate the hard work of student researchers. Specific awards are presented for top researchers across a variety of disciplines. 

Students are encouraged to sign up for Research Day by March 15, 2017.
