Celebrating Scholarship & Creativity Day
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, CSC Day 2020 is going virtual!. Although we are away from campus, Undergraduate Research deeply believes that it is still necessary for us to recognize the important work that has been done this year, and we are honoring that commitment to our students, faculty, and staff in several ways:
Virtual CSC Day on April 23
Students, Faculty, and Staff are encouraged to participate in virtual presentations on April 23. Undergraduate Research will host the schedule of virtual events on the CSC Day website, which will include our Virtual Large Poster Session using FlipGrid! We especially encourage students who are graduating this spring or for those who would like experience with virtual presenting to take advantage of this opportunity. Students interested in participating in our Virtual Large Poster Session or through other individual presentations should follow the respective registration steps below by April 17th. A complete schedule of Virtual CSC Day Events will go live the week of April 20th!
CSC Day Spotlight
Each CSC Day, the Undergraduate Research Program highlights the research and creative work of 10 exceptional student projects as part of our CSC Day Spotlight! In these difficult times, it is more important than ever to recognize our students for their work. To be considered for the spotlight, students must be nominated and submit a short reflection on their research experience. Call for nominations for Virtual CSC Day 2020 is now open; nominations accepted until April 17, with recipients being notified by April 20.
Publication of Annual Abstract Book
We are accepting abstracts for all projects that were completed in the 2019-2020 academic year and will include them in our annual printed publication of our abstract booklet. We encourage students to submit their full projects to DigitalCommons. Abstracts will be accepted through November 2020.
Fall Poster Session and Faculty Flash Talks
As you may know, this is the 20th anniversary of CSC Day. We would be remiss to not host an in-person CSC Day event in honor of this anniversary. At this time, we are planning a fall CSC Poster Session & Faculty Flash Talks Session in November to celebrate this tradition and provide students and faculty another avenue for disseminating their work. More details about this event will be provided when we return for Fall semester.
