  • The abstract must be written by the student presenter but should be reviewed/edited by his or her faculty sponsor. Mentors/Instructors should not write the abstract but are expected to guide the student in abstract development.
  • Submitted abstracts are limited to 200 words, and must contain the following (depending on the discipline):
    • Background (need, purpose/argument)
    • Methods/approaches
    • Results/takeaways
    • Conclusion/outcomes

Abstracts will be considered for poster presentations, oral presentations, or performing or visual arts. Space is limited; not every submission will be chosen.  A review committee will evaluate each submission for content and relevance.  All participants selected to present will be automatically registered for the symposium.
