The Annual Research Symposium allows faculty, undergraduate students, and graduate students to present their research and scholarly activity to a larger audience. The Symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students and faculty from all academic disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a broad range of exciting research topics.
