Due to an overwhelming response, SUNY Canton has extended the abstract deadline for the 2nd Annual Scholarly Activities Celebration until midnight Monday, March 22.
The lecture and presentation portion of the Scholarly Activities Celebration will be held Thursday, April 29, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The poster and artistic display portion of the celebration will be held Friday, April 30, in the Southworth Library. In order to participate, all student and faculty presenters must complete an abstract, found at www.canton.edu/abstract.
“There is a lot of wonderful research and innovation that occurs across all of our curricula,” noted Willam R. Trumble, SUNY Canton Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “The Scholarly Activities Celebration gives us a way to bring all of the highlights from the past year together and really focus on what we’ve accomplished as students and academics. Students get the added bonus of the excitement and experience of presenting their work and have the chance to win one of several $100 prizes.”
Last year’s celebration had more than 100 student and faculty presentations, ranging from art and design projects to poster presentations detailing the latest advancements in the Engineering Technology fields.
“We’ve expanded the Scholarly Activities Celebration to encompass lectures and presentations,” Jeffrey H. Taylor, chair of the celebration committee and Assistant Professor of Biology. “We’ve made this addition to allow a greater range of subjects to be highlighted at the celebration.”
