The undergraduate and graduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities, and Design (RSCAD) Forum will be held in Hoffman Lounge from 9-11 a.m. on Wednesday April 13th and Thursday April 14th, 2022.

We want to hear about your research and creative activities! Even if you are just starting your RSCAD endeavors, please participate. For example, design a poster highlighting your proposed project, a novel and/or creative idea or project, the impact of your design, a spark webpage, etc. You do not need to have a complete project to present and participate, nor do you need to be enrolled in HHS 499. The only stipulations: you need to be a student performing RSCAD activities in HHS and have a mentor/supervisor.

All participants will receive a a free lunch from Lacy’s Fresh Fare and Catering, and monetary prizes will be awarded to the top presenters in several categories. Undergraduate and graduate researchers will present together during both forum days but will be graded separately.
