Austin College will host its sixth annual Student Scholarship Conference, March 23-24, 2018. This event showcases student-faculty collaborative projects and independent student projects undertaken at Austin College, celebrating our students’ outstanding academic endeavors. Sponsored by the Robert & Joyce Johnson Center for Faculty Development and Excellence in Teaching and CREATE, the Austin College Student Scholarship Conference includes student presentations of research projects, intellectual scholarship activities, and creative works. In the spirit of the liberal arts, this conference brings together the intellectual stimulation of an academic pursuit with the thrill of creative expression.
Departments will identify and encourage students during the fall semester who have appropriate projects and would benefit from presenting at this all-campus event. Identification of students and preliminary submissions of project descriptions should occur by November 15, 2017, however, February 6, 2018 is the deadline for revisions to earlier submissions as well as new “late breaking” submissions. Please contact a committee representative for more information. Each student submission must have a faculty supervisor who will verify the progress of the student and their participation in the conference at the start of the spring semester. Students will be able to present their projects in a manner consistent with their discipline and suited for their form of scholarship.
