2017 Graduate Research and Creativity Expo: “Scholarship That Matters”

Sponsored by The Graduate School, Graduate Student Association and the Office of Research & Economic Development

Wednesday, April 5, 2017
12:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Elliott University Center

A $1,000 prize awarded in each category:

  • Creative Arts
  • Health Sciences
  • Humanities
  • Natural, Physical, and Mathematical Sciences
  • Professional Programs
  • Social Sciences

Criteria for evaluation will include:

  • Clarity of Communication to a Non-Specialized Audience
  • Effective Presentation Skills
  • Content Knowledge and Creativity
  • Organization
  • Originality
  • Ability to Explain Why This Research/Work Matters (economic impact, societal impact, etc.)

This event is designed to showcase graduate research and creative work to a variety of non-specialized audiences. Students should plan to present their work in a way that is accessible to diverse audiences and explain in jargon-free language why their work matters and is relevant. Students should imagine speaking to middle college students, undergraduates, journalists, community members, area business owners, representatives from boards and foundations, state legislators, or your neighbors down the street. Students are asked not to re-use a poster or paper that was prepared for a discipline-specific conference but to think of this new audience and the best way to communicate with them.
