Student Research & Scholarship Day (SRSD) is an annual event to showcase the research and scholarship activities of USCB students.
In preparation for SRSD, students join with faculty mentors to produce research and scholarship in the following categories:
- Poster Presentations
- Hypothesis-Driven — basic and applied research, testing a hypothesis using inferential statistics
- Issue-Based / Descriptive — Issue-based research is non-hypothesis based applied research, examining a socio-cultural, educational, political, health-related, economic, or technological issue. Descriptive research is non-hypothesis based research guided by a question or set of questions
- Visual Arts — Presentations of creative/artistic renderings
- Innovation/Application — Non-hypothesis driven project to develop a novel technique, algorithm, or procedural method for pedagogy, information processing, engineering, problem solving, or domain-specific best practices
- Oral Presentations
- Student Scholarship in the Humanities — literary & cultural criticism, storytelling, readings of original student written works
On the day of the event, oral presenters will gather in Hargray 158, and posters will be on display in Hargray Lobby. Students presenting posters will be available to discuss their work during the Poster Viewing Session. See the Agenda for times.
Lunch will be provided free to all presenters, faculty mentors, and judges.
Oral presentations must not exceed 20 minutes.
Electronically submitted posters (see FAQ) will be printed (full-color 48” wide x 36” tall) by the SRSD Committee. For your convenience, Powerpoint-based poster templates are now available for each of the poster categories.
