Student Research Conference Abstracts Due Feb. 28.

The 27th annual Student Research Conference will take place April 15. 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. Deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. Feb. 28. A copy of the information submitted will be sent electronically to the student presenter’s mentor for approval. Students should work with the faculty mentor before submitting the abstract to minimize multiple drafts in the system.

In addition to the many student presentations, the day will feature a conference-wide plenary address delivered by Jeffrey McClurken, chair and professor of history and American studies at the University of Mary Washington. More information on the plenary address is available at

Faculty-requested special sessions are included in the discipline options for presentations. Anyone planning to present in such a session should look for the specific discipline designation when submitting an abstract (ex: History Senior Seminar, Democracy and Human Rights in South Africa, Kirksville Sigma Xi, Secondary English MAE Intern Research).
