The conference is held on Friday afternoon of Family Weekend each October.  It showcases outstanding work that students have produced in general education courses. All students whose work is selected, their parents, and their faculty mentors will be invited to be our guests at a banquet immediately following the proceedings.

Nomination Process

Faculty should also be willing to mentor students selected to present at the conference during the preparation of their conference abstracts. Nominate students here:  NOMINATION FORM.
