Student Scholar Showcase
The annual Student Scholar Showcase, held during the spring semester, provides students with an opportunity to present their scholarly, research, creative, and/or service-learning projects to the campus community.
Student projects may include scholarly papers, creative writing projects, scientific or historical research projects, or performance arts projects, and may be presented in a variety of formats, including oral presentations and poster presentations. Project guidelines include the following:
- Sciences/Mathematics - an appropriate project in the sciences involves laboratory, computational, or field work that is designed to resolve a question or test a hypothesis.
- Social Sciences - such research projects are concerned with new knowledge for the sake of development of the field, or addressing or solving immediate questions or problems within the social sciences.
- Humanities - projects in the humanities involve historical, critical, or analytical studies that pursue an original question and/or work in a substantive way with primary and secondary sources. Projects in the humanities also include such creative writing as original prose, poetry, drama, and combined forms.
- Professional - submissions in this category will involve qualitative or quantitative projects that examine a theory-based or application-based problem or emphasize application of theory to practice. Original case writings, critiques of research literature, or evaluations of outcomes of practice are also acceptable.
- Arts - satisfactory artistic projects in art, music, theater, and film will be of the student’s own composition, with guidance from a faculty mentor. Examples include paintings, sculptures, photographic displays, musical compositions, dramatic performances, and video projects.
- Service Learning - projects that describe a service experience and the link to related course content. Projects may be presented as posters or as oral presentations. Service-learning projects require the approval of course faculty.
- Internships - submissions in this category will be descriptions and summaries of experiences obtained during LC-sponsored internships. Projects may be presented as posters, and require the approval of faculty mentors.
