Due Dates for the 2012 Student Creative Arts and Research Symposium

Don't forget! Abstract forms for presentations at the 2012 Student Creative Arts & Research Symposium are due Thursday, February 23, 2012. The Symposium will be held Tuesday, April 17, and Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

All undergraduate and graduate students can participate by submitting an abstract/artist statement for a visual arts exhibit or a poster, platform, or virtual presentation. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to develop confidence and skills in presenting your creative arts and research to others. It is also an opportunity for you to converse with faculty and fellow students about research and creative activities. You may request oral, poster, or virtual presentation formats for research. Again this year we will fund student poster preparation so that students have opportunity experience preparation for professional conference presentations.
