April 15 & 16, 2015
|IdeaFest is an annual event celebrating student research, creative scholarship and academic engagement. Undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines present their work in oral and poster presentations, live performances, readings, exhibits and displays. Not only does it offer students a unique opportunity to present their work, it's a way for the surrounding community to see how research and other academic activities enhance the education of students. As a highlight of the event, nationally recognized keynote speakers are invited to present their involvement in similar endeavors.
The IdeaFest speaker series is sponsored by the Provost & Vice-President for Academic Affairs, the Vice-President for Research & Sponsored Programs, and the Center for Academic and Global Engagement, in addition to various campus partners.
