Honors Capstone Research Conference
The University Honors Program holds its Capstone Research Conference each spring to celebrate the outstanding research, creative work, and other projects of its graduating seniors--and its most recent August and December graduates--by showcasing the capstone projects of a select group of these students.
The conference has space for forty-five presentations. We ask capstone advisors to nominate students’ work and then selection committees in each school put forward a final list of presenters.
A group of students is selected from the various schools and departments to give a 10-minute oral presentation of the essence of their capstone work. Another group of students is selected to present capstone work during the poster presentation period.
Everyone presenting at the Honors Capstone Research Conference–- whether in the oral presentation or poster session–-is eligible for the Capstone Research Conference awards. A panel of judges at the conference selects the students who will receive an Honors Capstone Research Conference Award, given at the annual Honors Convocation during Commencement weekend.
