SUpr Summit: Research Redefined
At Shenandoah University, research is more than “bench science.” It’s exploration– taking a journey.
Each April students celebrate their journeys of research at the Student Project & Research (SUpr) Summit. The SUpr Summit provides a venue for all SU students to show the broad range of study being done inside and outside classrooms as they present their projects, research, works-in-progress, and scholarly creative endeavors through digital media, fine art, audio and video recordings, and posters.
More than 350 students have taken advantage of this opportunity, which provides them with the ability to network with peers and VIPs, and practice presentations for regional and national conferences.
SUpr Summit began in 2014 with 12 student presenters. In 2019 there were more than 100 individual and group student presenters.
The brainchild of Associate Professor of Psychology Mark Chan, the SUpr Summit is currently under the direction of Dr. Audra Gollenberg.
The summit adds value to a student’s appeal to future employers and graduate school applications. The university’s Career Services Office supports SUpr Summit presenters by consulting about how to incorporate their Summit projects and research into their resumes.
For more information, contact SUpr Summit Director Audra Gollenberg to learn why the SUpr Summit is “Totally Worth It!”
Volunteers are needed!
Volunteering at the SUpr Summit is a great service opportunity for faculty and students who are not presenting. You can help with registration, set up, and break down. Faculty and graduate students may judge presentations. Lunch is provided. For information about volunteering, please email Audra Gollenberg. (Note: Faculty volunteers should list it as “other service” in their portfolio).
