Participating in ground-breaking research is just one part of the equation. Sharing what you've learned is the other. And at Concordia, you'll have no shortage of opportunities to do just that.

Presenting Student Research

We encourage students to present their research. With opportunities both on-campus and across the country, you'll be able to present your research to peers, professionals and experts in your field.
