COSS Mission

The Celebration of Student Scholarship (COSS) is a full-day research symposium that includes posters, talks, and art exhibitions by Concordia students who, under the guidance of a faculty mentor, have engaged in research or scholarship on campus or through extramural opportunities.

COSS provides undergraduate students from all disciplines and levels of experience the opportunity to present high-quality research, scholarship, and creative works in a public venue; to connect with alumni; and to explore the intersections of research, vocation, and career preparedness. 

COSS invites the campus and broader community to engage with student presenters as they showcase their achievements through a variety of scholarly projects.
