Student Research & Creative Activities Symposium

Poster on display attached to tripod

The 2018 Student Research and Creative Activities Symposium is October 11th and 12th.

The Tarleton Student Research and Creative Activity Symposium is a celebration of students actively engaged in research and other scholarly activities in all disciplines. These students, who often go beyond the typical requirements for a degree, deserve special recognition on campus.

Students from all disciplines who have been engaged in faculty-mentored, independent study research and other scholarly activities are encouraged to present. The primary focus of the Symposium is on students who have conducted research and scholarly activity independent of a classroom project.

Presentations will be evaluated using the rubrics below, and awards will be made to the first, second, and third place winners. First place winners will each receive $100 and a plaque.

We highly encourage students who are not engaged in the Student Research and Creative Activity Symposium to attend and engage with their fellow students. To facilitate student participation, the ORI offers an assignment which could be used by faculty as a verification of attendance: Research and Creative Activity Student Assignment.
