Spring Symposium for Research and Creative Inquiry

Tuesday, April 24, 20188:00AM - Tuesday, April 24, 20186:00PM

Please join us for the first annual Spring Symposium for Research and Creative Inquiry. 

The  Spring Symposium for Research and Creative Inquiry is a showcase for undergraduate and graduate achievements across disciplines. Students at this year's Symposium will share their scholarly work with the larger academic and local community in the form of oral presentations, poster sessions, performances, art exhibits, and more. 

On April 24th, 2018, over 600 students from all academic colleges will present their work. Many of the students are seniors, however we do have a good number of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors also presenting. The day is going to be organized like a conference, with hour-long poster sessions occurring in the Blackwell Ballroom all day (9-4), concurrent oral presentation sessions occurring in Ruffner classrooms all day (9-4), and keynote addresses from Longwood alumni in the morning (Dr. Sarah Tanner-Anderson, Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership, Longwood University, 8:15-9:00) and during lunch (Dr. Robert Northington, Research Assistant Professor, University of Maine Climate Change Institute, 12:30 - 1:30). There are also other events occurring on this day including the Junior Art Show in Bedford, the Senior Art Show at the LCVA, and a presentation and reception at the Moton Museum.
