We are pleased to announce that due to the success of last year’s event, the Grants Expo and Research Day will be a two-day event again this year, Tuesday, April 25 and Wednesday, April 26, 2017.   

The Expo recognizes and promotes student, faculty, and staff 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.

The PowerPoint slide for your poster must be submitted by email, posters submitted after April 7, 2017 will not be accepted for printing. Please note that presenters will be asked to set up their posters on Wednesday, April 24, 2017 but more details will be provided regarding this.
