All students, both undergraduate and graduate, are invited to register for the Shenandoah University Projects & Research (SUpr) Summit, set for Wednesday, April 23, in the Brandt Student Center, Ferrari Room. This is a great opportunity for students of all majors to share their work, including empirical research, projects, portfolios, presentations and demonstrations (both on-going and completed projects).
The summit is a poster session, to be judged by faculty volunteers. A rubric will be used for scoring, and judges will provide written comments and subjective feedback. The competition is offered to all schools and departments, and prizes will be awarded.
Participants will drop off and set up their projects from 7 to 9:45 a.m. on the day of the summit. They will choose one of four time slots to “present” their poster in the Ferrari Room for judging. The time slots are as follows: 10 to 10:45 a.m.; 11 to 11:45 a.m.; Noon to 12:45 p.m.; and 1 to 1:45 p.m. An awards ceremony and closing celebration will begin at 3 p.m. and project will be picked up between 4 and 7 p.m.
To enter, students must first seek their advisor or another faculty member that would be willing to support and guide their entry. Those wishing to apply are required to submit a 250-word abstract that should be approved by their faculty sponsor prior to submission. This abstract will be reviewed through a double-blind review process and printed in the event program. To register, please use this Google form. The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 1. Printing costs will be fully covered for those registering by Friday, Feb. 14, and at 50% for those registering by Friday, March 14.
Faculty judges are needed for the four time slots listed above. If you are interested in judging and available during any of the four time slots, please contact Assessment Coordinator Terri Masiello at [email protected]. Questions about the summit?
