This year’s event is hosted by the Offices of Research and Sponsored Programs and Undergraduate Research.   

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. This year, we are excited to offer the opportunity for participants to deliver either oral or poster presentations.

To help with developing your posters, we have attached a template.  The template has the correct dimensions of the poster so that it will print correctly. ORSP will take responsibility for having the posters printed but they must adhere to the poster specifications (48 inches wide x 36 inches high) indicated in the attached template.  All posters must be in PowerPoint ready to print by April 8, 2016 so that they can be completed in time for the event.  Even if you are printing your own posters, please adhere to these dimensions to ensure that the posters will fit the boards that will be provided. The PowerPoint slide for your poster must be submitted by email, posters submitted after April 8, 2015 will not be accepted for printing. Please note that presenters will be asked to set up their posters on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 but more details will be provided regarding this.
