The 7th Annual Grants Expo and Research Day will be held on Tuesday, April 22, 2014. This annual event recognizes and promotes faculty, staff and student scholarly activities in research and creative production and celebrates collaboration among faculty and students within and across disciplines. The exhibits that are presented will include both internally and externally sponsored projects, undergraduate student research, and graduate theses and dissertation projects.  Faculty and staff that have submitted and received external funding will be recognized. This year, student presenters will have the opportunity to compete for awards.

This year’s Expo provides undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff with an opportunity to share their research and creative projects with a broader audience--those not in the same areas of professional interest. The Expo’s purpose is to communicate the value of research and creative projects, enabling others to appreciate the significance of our researchers’ work to society and to those in other areas of professional interest.
