Present your research at Metropolitan State’s first Student Research Colloquium

The inaugural Student Research Colloquium seeks to highlight the innovative research, writing, creating and designing being done by students. Those selected to present will have an opportunity to share their work with the community in and around Metropolitan State through presentations, posters or creative projects.

All Metropolitan State students are welcome to apply by submitting a 250-word abstract by April 11. Abstracts should highlight the goals, audience and impact of the project as well as personal interest and history of the work.

Research or analytical papers may be presented to the audience by reading or preparing a slideshow. Poster projects can be large printed or tri-fold boards for presenters to stand by and engage with their audience as they view them. Creative projects are works that don’t fit into papers or posters; they can be audio projects or theatrical projects, and so on. Contact the conference organizer to discuss possible creative projects.

The colloquium takes place at 6 p.m., Monday, April 25 on the Saint Paul Campus. The event is free to attend and open to students, staff, faculty, family and community members.

Instructors can also nominate students who have promising and interesting scholarship and projects to share. The nomination form can be found here.

This event is sponsored by: Behavioral Science Student Association; the Psychology Lab; the Communication, Writing and the Arts Department; the Center for Psychological Research and the Center for Game Design and New Media Studies.
