Park University’s 10th annual Student Research and Creative Arts Symposium will showcase the scholarly work of students from all disciplines and campus locations, Monday, April 6, through Thursday, April 9, on the University’s Parkville Campus.

Undergraduate and graduate students submit course work or independent research projects, either single or collaboratively-authored, in the form of posters presenting laboratory or other applied research findings, research papers and oral presentations, creative works, visual art and graphic design installations, musical presentations and virtual presentations.

Student participants in the Symposium have the opportunity to share their work with a diverse audience of peers and enhance their résumé through participation in a professional conference setting.

Shannon Cuff, Ph.D., assistant professor of literacy education and faculty fellow coordinator of Park’s Honors Academy, said the Symposium is a wonderful way to celebrate the work of students and have the opportunity to see the projects of students in other disciplines. “The Symposium truly showcases the Park University community,” she said.
