About The Celebration of Student Research & Creative Activity

The Celebration of Student Research & Creative Activity is held every spring as an afternoon to recognize students' scholarly endeavors performed under the guidance of faculty, and allows students to present their accomplishments to the Xavier community. Although the Celebration is hosted by the College of Arts & Sciences, students from all colleges and disciplines are encouraged to submit their work. To expand participation to all colleges this year, we encourage the broadest definition of research and creative activity. For the first time, as part of the Celebration, we will be recognizing an Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year. 

Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year

Information regarding the new Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year and the nomination process can be found here. The submission deadline for award nominations is March 23.
