The conference is a University-wide celebration of student research, scholarship and creative achievements. Both undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts. Abstracts should be submitted online at All abstracts need to be sponsored by a Truman faculty or staff member.

A copy of the information submitted will be sent electronically to the student presenter’s mentor for approval.

The Student Research Conference is scheduled for April 16.

In addition to the many student presentations, the day will feature a conference-wide plenary address delivered by Bruno Louchouarn, director of the Keck Language and Culture Studio at Occidental College.
