Creative Collaborations: A Celebration of Student-Faculty Works
Thursday, April 19, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Hahn University Center
Abstract Submission Deadline: Feb. 24, 2012
Creative Collaborations celebrates student-faculty collaborative work and offers all undergraduate students a unique opportunity to present their research, scholarly work, internship experiences, or creative artifacts in a professional setting on the USD campus.
Students participating in undergraduate research, internships, or creative activities are invited to submit an abstract detailing the work to be presented at the conference. The Creative Collaborations website provides detailed information regarding abstract submission, presentation options, and photos from previous years. Abstracts will be accepted from Feb. 6 to Feb. 24, 2012. The submission website will close at 5 p.m. on Feb. 24, 2012.
Creative Collaborations 2012 will feature two presentation formats: posters and interactive exhibits. Some examples of appropriate interactive exhibits are displays of film, visual art, performance art, demos, and exhibits of research instrumentation or methodologies. Students may choose the format that best highlights their work. Limited funding is available to help cover poster printing costs for students who have not previously presented their work. Students who have already presented a poster at a regional or national conference are encouraged to display that poster at Creative Collaborations.
Due to growing interest and involvement, this year’s Creative Collaborations will co-occur with scheduled class meetings (11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 19). Faculty who teach during those times are asked to arrange their Spring syllabi, if at all possible, to allow their students to attend this special event.
