MSU’s Celebration of Student Scholarship is April 19 

Morehead State University students will gather this month to display their academic research to the campus community at the 17th Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship. It takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, at the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC).  

Faculty, staff, students, community members and alumni are welcome to attend the event to engage with our students and see the showcase of their scholarly and creative pursuits. The poster sessions will run from 1:15 to 3 p.m. in the ADUC Ballrooms on the third floor. The award presentation will begin at 4 p.m. in the ADUC theater on the first floor.  

More than 200 students will participate in 90 poster presentations and 41 oral presentations. Over 70 faculty mentors have supported students in this work.  

"Morehead State University truly believes in our students gaining hands-on experience through undergraduate research and other scholarly and creative pursuits. This Celebration of Student Scholarship is one of my favorite events as it is an opportunity for our students to be recognized and highlight the hard work and innovation that went into their research," said Megan Boone, director of the Center for Career Development and Experiential Education. "You see projects from so many different disciplines ranging from biology to history to art. An added advantage is that participating students develop in-demand career skills in critical thinking, written communication and oral communication. These skills will serve them well in terms of career success."  

Initiated in the Spring of 2006, the Celebration of Student Scholarship shares and spotlights the outstanding work of students involved in research, scholarship, creative work and performance arts to the campus community. The day-long event consists of presentations, exhibitions and performances by students from the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, College of Science, Elmer R. Smith College of Business & Technology, and the Ernst & Sara Lane Volgenau College of Education.  

All undergraduate and graduate students working with faculty on scholarly endeavors within their discipline (research, creative productions, community engagement, etc.) are encouraged to present their work annually as an oral or poster presentation. In addition to independent research projects, the event welcomes submissions that reflect undergraduate research experiences, community engagement, internships, education abroad, or Level UP experiences.
