Celebrating Scholarship & Creativity Day

Undergraduate Research invites you to save the date for Virtual Celebrating Scholarship & Creativity Day 2021. As in years past, CSC Day will continue our tradition of recognizing and honoring the achievements of students, faculty, and staff who have undertaken significant research, scholarship, or creative works during this academic year. Presenters will have the option of presenting live on CSC Day via Zoom or submitting a pre-recorded presentation for our Virtual Large Poster Session.

Event Schedule

Presentations will run from 8:30am on April 19 into the evening, with 4-5 live sessions scheduled each hour. Our Virtual Poster Session will be available for viewing all day. Key featured events this year will include:

Embrace Difference Series

New this year, CSC Day will include a special session highlighting research and creative work that aligns with our institutional learning goal of “Embrace Difference.” Presenters will have the option to be featured as part of the Embrace Difference series through designation on their registration form. Please note that is not a requirement to have projects relate to this theme; all scholarly and creative work is welcome.

Becoming Community Celebration

To celebrate the recent work of the Becoming Community grant for transformative inclusion, members of Dialogue Groups will offer a panel presentation about their varied action plans for institutional change at CSB/SJU, working to build equity in many different ways.
