Scholarship and Creative Works Conference

Scholarship and Creative Works Conference

Join us April 27, 2021 as intellectual curiosity comes to life through hundreds of student presentations spanning disciplines from arts and humanities to natural and social sciences.

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

To ensure a successful event, this year’s conference will be virtual. All of the traditional formats (e.g., talks, posters, creative exhibitions, etc.) will still be offered through a digital conference hosting platform.

Questions about the virtual format? Email us at researchconference@adelphi.edu or check out ePosterboards website to see the types of virtual spaces that will be provided. (Note that more information and training on the virtual format will be available to each presenter and their mentors following the review of submissions.)

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 Research 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.

A student passionately explaining her research at Adelphi University's research conference

I’m a physicist, but I love going to a political science presentation. It’s so enriching to see things I, of course, think about, but don’t ever get an opportunity to talk about.

Matthew Wright, PhD Physics Professor at Adelphi University
