2022 Scholarship and Creative Works Conference

An annual sign of spring, the Scholarship and Creative Works Conference—Research Day, for short—offers a showcase for hundreds of Adelphi University students as they present their research to fellow students, faculty members and visitors.

This annual celebration is a testament to the thriving academic environment and vibrant creative community experienced by students at Adelphi.

Conditions permitting, this year’s conference will be held in-person in the Ruth S. Harley University Center. We encourage all in our community to attend and explore the exceptional work being done by our students. Registration is required; the registration link will open closer to the Conference date.

A Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity

One day each spring, we come together as a community to celebrate student scholarship and creativity during the annual Adelphi University Scholarship and Creative Works Conference. Students get to share their hard work with their peers, faculty members and visitors. In the process, they build presentation and communication skills, learn to defend their work and engage with other academics, and, overall, develop an appreciation for scholarship and what it contributes to society. At the end of the day, we gather to recognize our award winners and congratulate our entire research community.

This conference is easily one of the best days of the year. Our students have so much creativity, ingenuity, and insight and it is inspiring to see it on full display. We gain so much as a community when we come together like this to step outside our own departments and learn from one another.
