Celebration of Student Scholarship is an opportunity for students who have been involved in original, scholarly projects to present their work at a formal, campus-wide academic event, and for other students to learn about the scope of research, scholarship and creative experiences they can become involved in. The student presentations describe faculty-guided projects conducted at Concordia, off-campus experiences or other independent scholarly accomplishments.
Every year, students participate in groundbreaking research at Concordia alongside distinguished faculty who are recognized leaders in their fields. The college has several programs that support undergraduate research and scholarship.
